Tel Aviv police are weighing a criminal investigation into who is behind a number of 'wanted’ posters of former prime minister Ehud Olmert that have appeared recently in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

A police spokesperson said Tuesday they were still examining whether hanging or creating the posters constitutes a criminal offense.The posters don’t specify what crimes Olmert is wanted for, but they began appearing days after at least two close confidants to the former prime minister were arrested as part of the probe into the Holyland corruption affair. The alleged bribery and misconduct that took place during the building of the Holyland real estate project in Jerusalem date back to when Olmert was mayor of Jerusalem. Earlier corruption charges against Olmert led to his resignation from the premiership in July 2008.

Olmert has denied insinuations that he is linked to the Holyland affair.
