A judge has denied a request by convicted former prime minister, Ehud Olmert, to fly overseas for a business meeting, according to a YNet report.

The judge also denied a similar request by former Jerusalem city engineer Uri Shitreet.

Both were convicted for their roles in the Holyland corruption scandal. Olmert is set to serve a multi-year prison sentence for his role.

  1. What rubbish , do the crime, then do the time, no flying around to do business
