Olmert could be indicted again


Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert could be indicted in another political corruption affair.

Prosecutors informed Olmert Monday that they are considering indicting him for making political appointments while serving as minister of industry and trade. The indictment is pending a pretrial hearing, where Olmert will have an opportunity to defend himself.

Olmert rejected pretrial hearings before being indicted in three other corruption cases, for which he is currently standing trial.

The political appointments investigation came about as a result of a state comptroller’s report published in 2006.

Olmert also is a main suspect in the probe of the Holyland real estate scandal.
