Court to sentence Olmert today in Talansky retrial

The Jerusalem District Court is due to sentence former prime minister Ehud Olmert on Monday for his fraud under “aggravated circumstances” conviction in the Talansky retrial.

Olmert was convicted, in March, of illegally receiving and concealing funds alleged to have been more than $600,000 from New York businessman Morris Talansky from 1993 and 2002, in a case itself dating back to 2008.

The conviction was based on the state having proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Olmert had indeed illegally used at least $153,950 of the $600,000 in question.
