` Ehud Olmert is `Convicted of Bribery' in an ` Israeli Court ' thus ending his Political Prospects '

#AceFinanceNews – ISRAEL – March 31 – An Israeli court convicted former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of bribery on Monday, Reuters reported.

He had denied wrongdoing in the Holy Land apartment complex deal while in his previous post of Jerusalem mayor, and other corruption allegations that forced his resignation as premier in 2008.

The conviction is likely ending any prospect of a political comeback for Olmert.
