Watch: An inside look at Ehud Olmert’s prison block


Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert began his 19-month prison term on Monday for corruption, and shortly after he entered his cell, Israel Prison Service (IPS) distributed footage of the special prison block where he is to serve his time.

Block 10 in Maasiyahu Prison in the central city of Ramle has recently been refurbished to keep prisoners such as Olmert who are privy to sensitive security information separate from the general prison population. As a result, Olmert is to enjoy "luxury" jail conditions.
