Israel's Olmert: from promise to prison

Israel's Olmert: from promise to prisonEhud Olmert was once described as “probably the best” politician Israel ever produced, but the debonair ex-premier who was released from prison on Sunday has seen a humiliating fall from grace. Olmert, 71, became Israel’s first ex-prime minister to serve jail time when he walked into the Maasiyahu prison in the central city of Ramle in February 2016 for the 27-month term over corruption scandals. A balding father-of-four with a lean physique, roguish grin and a reputed taste for fine cigars, Olmert maintained his innocence in a video message before entering prison.
