Former Israeli PM Ehud Olmert guilty of corruption chargeTuesday 10 July 2012 17.46
Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been found guilty of a corruption charge but acquitted on two other counts.
The verdict was announced in a Jerusalem court, which convicted him of bribery related to his term as Israel's trade and industry minister before he became prime minister in 2006.
Sentencing will be at a later date.
He was acquitted of charges of receiving bribes from a US businessman and double-billing Israeli charities for fund-raising trips overseas.
