Ehud Olmert ‘cut-price flat for favours’ case is closed

Posted by claudiacampli su 27 marzo, 2009


Jerusalem Police have closed a corruption investigation involving Ehud Olmert, the outgoing Israeli Prime Minister, who faces two indictments. Investigators have failed to find significant evidence “that illegal acts were carried out on behalf of Ehud Olmert and closed the case”, a spokesman said.

The Cremieux Street case involved Mr Olmert’s purchase below market price of a Jerusalem flat, allegedly in exchange for political favours when he was mayor of the city.

He is still under investigation over suspicions of unlawful appointments that he allegedly made while he was Trade and Industry Minister from 2003 to 2006, the police spokesman said.

General Menahem Mazuz, the Israeli Attorney, has notified Mr Olmert of his intention to charge him over two separate allegations that he multiply billed foreign trips and that he unlawfully accepted cash-stuffed envelopes from a US financier, Morris Talansky.

This month police recommended that Mr Olmert be indicted for allegedly granting preferential treatment to a factory represented by a friend. Mr Olmert, who says that he is innocent but stepped down on September 21, has been questioned by police 16 times. (AFP)
