Israel’s Prison Service says former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been released after serving time for corruption.
Spokesman Assaf Librati says Olmert was freed early Sunday morning.
Last week the parole board granted the 71-year-old Olmert early release from his 27-month corruption sentence.
Olmert was convicted in 2014 on charges of accepting bribes to promote a real-estate project in Jerusalem and obstructing justice. The charges pertained to a period when he was mayor of Jerusalem and trade minister before he became premier in 2006. Read more at Fox News.
