Deputy A-G: State to reconsider Holyland after Olmert loss

Deputy Attorney General Raz Nazri on Wednesday said that the state prosecutor would reconsider how to move forward with the Holyland case against former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in light of the prosecutor's staggering defeat in its corruption trial against Olmert on Tuesday, in an interview with Army Radio.

Nazri added that it was the responsibility of the prosecutor's office to assess the impact of all decided cases on whether and how to bring future cases, and that there would definitely be consequences for the Holyland case.



Olmert was acquitted Tuesday by the Jerusalem District Court of all major charges and nearly all charges, other than the minor charge of breach of the public trust in the Investment affair.

Subsequent to the verdict, head prosecutor Moshe Lador found himself having to defend his right to stay in office, holding an unprecedented press conference to fight back calls for his resignation and to justify the state's decision to bring Olmert to trial despite the end result.
