Israel's ex-PM Olmert granted early release from prison in corruption case Sunday July 02,2017

Israeli ex-prime minister Ehud Olmert was freed from prison on Sunday July 02,2017 after being granted parole in a corruption case that reduced his sentence by a third.

 Ehud Olmert, the country's first former premier to serve jail time, did not speak to reporters when leaving the Maasiyahu prison in central Israel.

Wearing a dark-coloured T-shirt, he was seen exiting the jail shortly after dawn on Sunday before being driven away.
The 71-year-old, premier between 2006 and 2009, was convicted of graft and entered prison in February 2016. He had been sentenced to 27 months.
Olmert was granted early release by a parole board on Thursday June 29,2017 and prosecutors decided not to appeal the decision.
