Ehud Olmert, Israel’s former prime minister, has been charged with corruption.
The fraud and tax evasion allegations relate to when he was serving as the mayor of Jerusalem and as a cabinet minister before he became prime minister in 2006.
Olmert, who denies the allegations, could be jailed for up to 10 years if found guilty.
