Livni praises verdict of former boss Olmert

Zionist Union MK Tzipi Livni hails the verdict for former prime minister Ehud Olmert.

“The justice system has shown today that there is no man who is above the law, and that every case will be dealt with on its merits, and impartially,” the two-time justice minister says. “This is an important day that represents the process of cleaning up the government from its corruption, and is an important message to all public officials.”

Livni, formerly of the Kadima party, had served as foreign minister under Olmert, and endorsed him in 2006 for the premiership.
