Moral turpitude for Olmert on hold indefinitely

The state attorney on Wednesday decided not to seek a court classification of moral turpitude for Olmert's conviction in the Investment Center affair, since the former prime minister does not intend to return to public office.

The state stressed that it did believe that Olmert's actions in the affair were deserving of moral turpitude, however, as long as it was not relevant, it would postpone this aspect of the hearing. A decision to classify Olmert's conviction as moral turpitude would effectively end his career, barring him from public office for seven years, as well as stripping him of benefits afforded former prime ministers, including an office, staff, phone, car, driver and related expenses.
