Lawyers for Olmert, who served as premier from 2006 to 2009, crowning a political career spanning decades, immediately announced they would appeal. The Jerusalem district court convicted Olmert of fraud and corruption in March following a retrial over allegations that he had received envelopes of cash from a US businessman while trade and industry minister in the early 2000s.</p><br clear="all"/>
