Israel’s Jail Service says former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been launched after serving time for corruption.
Spokesman Assaf Librati says Olmert was freed early Sunday morning.
Final week the parole board granted the seventy one-yr-previous Olmert early launch from his 27-month corruption sentence.
Olmert was convicted in 2014 on expenses of accepting bribes to advertise an actual-property challenge in Jerusalem and obstructing justice. The fees pertained to a interval when he was mayor of Jerusalem and commerce minister earlier than he turned premier in 2006.
Olmert was a longtime fixture in Israel’s hawkish proper wing when he started taking a dramatically extra conciliatory line towards the Palestinians.
His imprisonment ended the final main Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts and ushered within the period of Benjamin Netanyahu in 2009.
