Olmert Punished By Israel Prison Service For Possessing Classified Information


Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been punished by the Israel Prison Service after classified documents were found in his possession in jail.

Olmert has lost telephone privileges as well as a planned furlough, Israeli media reported over the weekend.

It is not known if the material was classified documents that Olmert had kept at home or material that he had written and was not submitted to censors as required, according to reports.

In March, President Reuven Rivlin rejected a pardon request for Olmert. Olmert is scheduled to have a hearing before a parole board in June. The board could reduce his sentence by one-third. Read more at STL Jewish Light.
