State asks for 6 years jail minimum for former PM Olmert
The state prosecution asked the court Monday for two prison sentences – a minimum of six years on one count, and up to eleven for former prime minister and Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert, who was convicted of bribery on March 31. The state also requested that he pay a fine of NIS 1,347,000. The court will deliver its ruling at a later date. The court hearing also dealt with the punishment of nine other defendants in the same case, including another former Jerusalem mayor Uri Lupolianski, for whom the prosecution requested four to eight years of jail time.
