Ex-Israeli PM says he`s victim of `witch hunt`

Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says he is the victim of an "organised, cruel and ruthless witch hunt, the likes of which Israel has never seen."



Jerusalem: Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
says he is the victim of an "organised, cruel and ruthless
witch hunt, the likes of which Israel has never seen."

Olmert spoke today as his corruption trial resumed in
Jerusalem. He is charged with accepting illicit funds from an
American supporter and double-billing Jewish groups for trips
abroad.

Olmert also gas been linked to a multimillion-dollar real
estate bribery scandal that has riveted Israel. Olmert has
denied all the allegations against him, saying he never
accepted a bribe during his three-decade-long political
career.

His trial began last September and was suspended last
month after Olmert`s lawyers said he couldn`t receive a fair
trial in the current climate.
