Former Israeli PM Olmert found guilty of corruption charge
JERUSALEM, July 10 — Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was found guilty today of a corruption charge but acquitted on two other counts.
The verdict was announced in a Jerusalem court, which convicted him of bribery related to his term as Israel’s trade and industry minister before he became prime minister in 2006. He will be sentenced at a later date.
He was acquitted of charges of receiving bribes from a US businessman and double-billing Israeli charities for fund-raising trips overseas. — Reuters
