Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of Israel, who resigned from office in 2008 amid a corruption inquiry, has been found guilty in a bribery trial arising from a property development in Jerusalem.
Olmert, 68, was convicted on Monday. The former Kadima party leader had denied wrongdoing.
The BBC reports the offences happened when Olmert was mayor of Jerusalem and subsequently a government minister.
In 2012, Olmert was cleared of two major corruption charges but convicted of illegally granting favours to a business friend during his time as trade and industry minister.
He was fined $US19,000 and given a suspended sentence of one year in prison.
