Olmert Requests Pardon In Bid To Return To Politics


Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who spent 16 months in jail on a bribery conviction, has asked Israel’s president to pardon him in order to erase his criminal record.

Olmert was the first Israeli prime minister to serve time in prison and be sentenced to jail. Last month, Olmert published a nearly 900-page scorched-earth book in which he continued to proclaim his innocence, blaming the harm to his political career on extremist forces in the right wing.

A pardon would allow Olmert to return to politics.
