Olmert set to be interrogated over Rehov Cremieux home affair

Outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was due to spend yet another Friday morning being interrogated by the Israel Police's National Fraud Unit over corruption allegations. The 16th interrogation, expected to be the last, will reportedly focus 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. Israel Radio reported that Friday's session was set to last four hours.
