Lapid on Olmert's sentence: Day ex-PM is sent to jail is sad day for democracy
Finance Minister Yair Lapid commented on the jail sentence handed down to former prime minister Ehud Olmert, and said "the day a former prime minister is sent to jail is a sad day for democracy, and sad for me at a personal level."


However, Lapid backed the legal system and said "nonetheless, this is an important day for the justice system, which once again showed no one is above the law." (Attila Somfalvi)
