The Justice Ministry on Wednesday hit back at former prime minister Ehud Olmert and his public relations team, calling their public statements about the state’s intent to appeal Olmert’s acquittals “destructive” and inappropriate “personal” attacks.

The state attorney informed Olmert’s lawyer, Eli Zohar, on Tuesday night that it would be appealing Olmert’s acquittals and sentence in the Jerusalem District Court corruption trial.

Following the state’s telephone call to Zohar, the news became public, according the Justice Ministry spokesperson, due to the actions of Olmert’s team.
