Police announced on Sunday night that former prime minister Ehud Olmert will be called as a witness in its investigation of allegations that former prime minister Ehud Barak took bribes.

Two weeks ago, Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein ordered police to investigate bribery allegations Olmert made against Barak in a taped conversation.

The decision came a day after an NGO asked Weinstein to investigate taped allegations Olmert made sometime in 2007-2009 that his then defense minister Barak had taken millions of dollars in bribes as part of arms and weapons transactions.
