An Israeli court will on Tuesday hand down its verdict in the corruption trial of former prime minister Ehud Olmert, dpa reported.
Olmert stood trial on three corruption charges, all stemming from when he served as mayor of Jerusalem between 1993 and 2003, and as a minister from 2003 until he became prime minister in 2006.
One charge alleged that he accepted envelopes with large amounts of cash from Jewish-American businessman Morris Talansky, and did not report them, as required by law.
The second charge claims he double- and sometimes triple-billed charities and public organizations for trips he took abroad on their behalf.
The second charge relates to the so-called Rishon Tours affair, according to which Olmert is accused of double- and triple-billing flights abroad, and using the money to pay for flights for family members.
In the third charge, Olmert was accused of cronyism when served as Trade and Industry Minister. He is accused of favouring business clients of his friend and former partner Uri Messer, who applied for state grants and other benefits with the ministry's investment arm.
Olmert denied any wrongdoing.
The allegations, which surfaced in 2008, led to Olmert's resignation as prime minister and pushed Israel into an early election.
