Police question Aliza Olmert for first time in probes of husband

Police questioned Prime Minister Ehud Olmert for a seventh time on Friday in connection with one of the multiple corruption probes that have upset his tenure. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Olmert was questioned for 2 1/2 hours over a house he bought in Jerusalem's upper-class Cremieux Street before becoming prime minister. He is suspected of having received the house at a discount in exchange for promoting a Jerusalem construction project while he was the city's mayor. Police suspect irregular building permits were granted. Rosenfeld said Olmert's wife, Aliza, was also questioned for the first time in connection with the probes targeting the premier.
