MK Edelstein: Olmert's political verdict long overdue

MK Yuli Edelstein (Likud) on Wednesday evening praised Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz's declared intention to put Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on trial over the Rishon Tours case, but said it came too late. "His political verdict should have been given a long time ago, but his party members wouldn't let go of their chairs and backed his corrupt actions," Edelstein said.
