The Central District Court handed down a sentence of seven months imprisonment to Yoram Karashi on Sunday, following his conviction for bribery, soliciting bribes and breach of trust.
Karashi, the brother of the former prime minister Ehud Olmert's aide Shula Zaken, was convicted in a plea bargain for his role in the Tax Authority bribery scandal, which broke in 2007.
Karashi's conviction came after former Israel Tax Authority chief Jacky Matza was sentenced to a year in prison in January for bribery, after signing a plea bargain that offered him lesser charges but turned him state witness against Karashi and several others in the scandal, including former tax authority employee Shmuel Boborov.
