Opposition chairman on Olmert's sentence: Everyone is equal in face of law

Opposition and Labor Chairman Isaac Herzog commented on the jail sentence handed down to former prime minister Ehud Olmert, and said, "it is a sad day for those who know (Olmert) personally for many years."


However, Herzog nonetheless praised the sentence and said it "proves that in Israel there is a free and independent justice system and that everyone is equal in the face of the law." (Attila Somfalvi)
