Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s lawyers filed a court case accusing State Attorney Moshe Lador of libel on Thursday.

Olmert had complained on Sunday that Lador ruined his reputation when Lador, in an interview to Haaretz, described a $75,000 loan Olmert had received from American businessman Joe Elmaliach in 1993 as “scandalous.” Olmert said that the loan had been re-paid and demanded that Lador and Haaretz apologize and together donate NIS 50,000 to an agreed upon charity.
