The State Prosecutor on Monday announced its intention to indict former prime minister Ehud Olmert in the "Holyland" affair.
Olmert was expected to be charged with accepting bribes, in part of an indictment that named 18 suspects.
Other defendants in the case were Olmert's former assistant Shula Zaken,
former mayor of Jerusalem Uri Lupolianski and a list of other suspects.
The indictment was expected to be filed pending a hearing for each defendant.
