Prisoner number 1 – What Olmert the inmate can expect on the inside

For nearly two decades Ehud Olmert lived and worked in the upper echelons of Israeli public life – including three years as Prime Minister. On Monday, he joined a different VIP section of sorts, when he began serving his 19-month prison term in a special segregated section of Maasiyahu Prison.

At the moment Olmert entered the prison, his security became the responsibility of the Prison Service, as opposed to the Shin Bet Israel Security Agency which provided his security from the moment he became Prime Minister in 2006.
