Report: Former PM Olmert denied get out of jail pass for grandson’s bar mitzva

A month after Ehud Olmert entered prison on charges of corruption, the former prime minister’s request to attend his grandson’s bar mitzva was denied, Channel 2 reported on Thursday.  

Olmert requested to leave the Ma’asiyahu Prison in Ramle only for a few hours to take part in his family’s celebration, Channel 2 reported. The Israel Prison Authority found that Olmert did not meet its criteria for such short hours-long furlough, a source told Channel 2.
