Tel Aviv police said on Tuesday they are considering opening a criminal investigation into who is behind a number of “wanted posters” of former prime minister Ehud Olmert that have appeared recently in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
The posters show the portrait of Ehud Olmert with the word “wanted” in large block letters at the bottom.
A police official said they were still examining whether hanging or creating the posters constitutes a criminal offense.
The posters don’t specify what crimes Olmert is wanted for, but they
began appearing days after at least two close confidants to the former
prime minister were arrested as part of the probe into the Holyland
corruption affair. The alleged bribery and misconduct that took place
during the building of the Holyland real estate project in Jerusalem
date back to when Olmert was mayor of Jerusalem. Earlier corruption
allegations against Olmert led to his resignation from the premiership
in July 2008.
Olmert has denied reports that he is linked to the Holyland affair.
