Israel Ex-Premier Cleared Of Most Corruption Charges
The split-decision ended a five-year inquiry on corruption, where Olmert was accused of accepting cash-stuffed envelopes from Morris Talansky, an American businessman, and double billing for travel expenses. The former prime minister was also accused of delegating government contracts and grants to his supporters.
The high-profile case forced Olmert to resign from his position as prime minister in 2008, despite the allegations stemming from his time as mayor of Jerusalem and industry trade minister.
Olmert will be sentenced in September, where he faces up to three years in prison.
