Outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert spent yet another Friday being interrogated by the Israel Police's National Fraud Unit over corruption allegations. The 16th interrogation lasted some three-and-a half hours, and reportedly focused on allegations that Olmert took a bribe of $320,000 by purchasing a home on Jerusalem's Rehov Cremieux below market value. In return, he allegedly promised to help the land developer and building contractor, a company called Alumot, obtain favorable terms from the Jerusalem Municipality so that he could increase his building rights on the property.
