Tel Aviv : In an unusual issue of a warrant, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was questioned Thursday by police in a corruption investigation, police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld reported on Friday.
The prime minister’s office said that as soon as he was notified, Olmert cooperatef with authorities.
Olmert, subject to three investigations for corruption for actions before he assumed the post of prime minister in 2006, has denied involvement in any illegal action.
Charges include giving favors in exchange for a discount on the price of a house he bought in Jerusalem in 2004 and appointing several friends to a state business authority in 2003 when he was trade minister.
In November 2007 police concluded there was not enough evidence to take action against him for his role in the sale of state Laumi bank at the time he was serving as finance minister.
