Olmert on way into court: 'The time has come for the facts'

By JPOST.COM STAFF


Charges against former premier Ehud Olmert include fraudulent receipt of goods, false registration of corporate documents, fraud, breach of trust, and tax evasion in the Rishon Tours scandal, the "cash envelopes" affair, and the "investment center" case.
On his way into the court, Olmert told reporters that he had been subject to "an almost inhumane three years of slander and interrogations," and that he had "paid a heavy price" for the allegations.
"But the time has come for the facts and the facts only," he said. "I have arrived here as a completely innocent man, and I believe I'll leave here a completely innocent man."
Asked about his trial on Thursday in an interview on BBC's Hard Talk program, Olmert said he had full confidence that he would be proven innocent. "I am innocent," he said. "I look at some of my colleagues, my former colleagues in different Western countries in Europe. They were charged with similar accusations and in the end, nothing happened. And I am absolutely certain that this will be the outcome of this particular case."
When asked whether he had wrestled with the prospect of ending up in prison, he said: "Ah, I laugh," and added that in his mind there was absolutely no possibility that could happen.

The most relevant literature regarding what happened since September 11, 2001 is George Orwell's "1984".
