Olmert faces new corruption charge

Ehud Olmert, the former Israeli prime minister, who left office last year due to corruption charges, has been identified as a key suspect in separate bribery charges.

Police said on Thursday that Olmert, 63, was suspected in a case in which millions of dollars were exchanged for the promotion of real estate projects, including a controversal housing scheme in Jerusalem in which zoning laws had to be changed.

Olmert is suspected of taking almost $1m in bribes during the time of the Holyland residential project in the 1990s, when he was the mayor of Jerusalem…

…The case has been billed as Israel’s “real estate scandal of the century” in the local media. Olmert’s picture had previously been placed next to the story in newspapers, although the gag order prevented the “public figure” allegedly involved from being named.

Al Jazeera’s Jacky Rowland, in Jerusalem, said: “An investigating judge called it one of the worst corruption cases in the history of Israel.

“Police suspect that he benefitted from backhanders to change planning laws. Olmert is expected to speak later.”

Olmert was already facing three different charges of corruption.

He was forced to step down as prime minister last year after police accused him of double and triple-billing Jewish organisations for trips abroad and taking the extra money.

However, police have said that the new charges are much bigger then those previously filed against him.

Trial Against Israeli ex-PM begins

JERUSALEM, Feb. 25 (UPI) — Prosecutors expressed confidence Thursday evidence would prove former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was guilty of fraud, tax evasion and breach of trust.

Defense attorneys countered that the prosecution knows its evidence was inadequate to prove its case against Olmert, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Olmert’s trial opened Thursday in the Jerusalem District Court. He was indicted for fraudulent receipt of goods, false registration of corporate documents, fraud, breach of trust, tax and tax evasion on three different issues…

Trial against former premier Olmert opens in Israel

Jerusalem – The first trial in Israeli history against a former premier opened Friday in Jerusalem’s District Court. Almost exactly a year after he resigned amid corruption allegations, former premier Ehud Olmert made his first court appearance, in what was largely a preliminary procedural hearing…

As Olmer arrived at the court he told reporters: “I arrived here as a man innocent of any crimes, and I believe I will leave here as a man innocent of any crimes.”…

The indictments themselves were filed in August.

They include charges of fraud under aggravated circumstances, breach of trust, forging of corporate documents, and failure to report income. Olmert is not, however, facing charges of bribery, as the police had recommended to prosecutors.

Amongst other charges, he is suspected of having submitted multiple times over the same travel expenses for trips abroad to different government bodies and Jewish organizations.

The ex-premier allegedly pocketed the excesses, which accumulated in a special account managed by his travel agent and used for private trips with his family. That alleged corruption scandal became known in the Israeli media as Rishon Tours, after the travel agency, or as “Olmertours.”

The former premier is also suspected of having accepted envelopes with large amounts of cash from Jewish-American businessman Morris Talansky. Olmert insists they constituted legitimate donations.

His office manager Zaken allegedly in many cases accepted the money on his behalf.

Lastly, Olmert stands accused of cronyism, allegedly giving preferential treatment to a factory represented by a friend of his, Uri Messer, when he served as trade and industry minister…

Although Olmert is the first former or current Israeli premier ever to stand trial on criminal charges, but the proceedings come as Israel’s political elite is tarnished by a host of corruption and other scandals….

Israeli officers fear UK arrest

Al Jazeera 5 January 2010. A group of Israeli military officers have delayed an official visit to Britain over fears they could be arrested on war crimes charges.

Danny Ayalon, Israel’s deputy foreign minister, said on Tuesday that four officers invited to the UK by the British army would not be travelling “as we do not have a 100 per cent guarantee that they will not become objects of criminal lawsuits”.

The officers, who hold ranks from major to colonel, are the latest in a string of Israeli politicians and military officials to call off travel to Britain due to fears over possible legal action…

A second Gaza war around the corner?

Hasan Abu Nimah, The Electronic Intifada, 13 January 2010

Israel is once again complaining that its “security” is being threatened by new eruptions of violence along the border with Gaza. About two dozen Qassam rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza in recent days. Although they fell in (and may have been deliberately targeted at) open areas, causing no damage or injuries, Israel took revenge with destructive air raids that did cause damage and killed several people, including a 15-year-old boy.

Before asking who should stop first, one should recall who started the latest ugly round of violence….

Sderot – An Egg for an Egg

A klog is mir! We just received news that a direct hit was made by a quasam rocket on a chicken coop in Sderot yesterday.

Oy gevalt, at least ten chickens have been diagnosed with panic symptoms, and there are rumours of an acute shortage of chicken soup in southern Israel for the next twelve hours.

Chicken against Zionism called today for an end to the violence. They published their collective cluck on Hens Sans Frontiers, the official voice of Chickens for Peace.

The Deputy of British Chickens is calling on chickens around the world to unite against hamasnik terror, and Boychick Greenstein of the Independant Chicken Voice and Brighton Unemployed Layers Centre has called for a world-wide strike on egg production.

Sderot shall not burn! An egg for an egg!

United against minor injuries

A klog is mir
