Following the State Attorney Office's recommendation to sentence former prime minister Ehud Olmert to at least six years in prison, Olmert fiercely denied having accepted bribes, during the second day of the sentence hearing on Tuesday.

"I never asked, for or got a bribe, neither indirectly nor directly, not for me, not for close people, not for anyone in the family," Olmert said.

"I respect this place, all  judges in israel, and you, so I decided to keep my remarks very short and will not cry out the cry that I wanted to make," he said. "I never took a bribe. This is the truth and there is no other."
