The Supreme Court on Tuesday partially accepted former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's appeal of his 2014 bribery conviction, acquitting him of receiving a NIS 500,000 bribe but upholding his conviction for accepting NIS 60,000 and reducing his prison sentence from six years to 18 months.
The verdict brings an end to what may be the largest corruption case in Israel's history and makes the ex-leader the first prime minister to go to jail. He is to begin serving his sentence on February 15.
