Mazuz says he would order an appeal on Olmert's acquittal

August 30, 2012 20:28

Former Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz told Channel 10 news on Thursday night that he would order an appeal to the Supreme Court on the July overall acquittal of former prime minister Ehuld Olmert in Jerusalem District Court.

Most analysts do not expect the state to appeal the acquittals as the acquittals themselves were so virtually across the board and embarrassing already to the state that it would be highly risky for the state to continue to draw attention to the case.

At the time of the acquittals, many called for head state prosecutor Moshe Lador to resign, with one public figure even metaphorically calling for Lador to commit suicide in reference to an ancient Japanese custom when one has failed miserably in one's duty.
