Report: Former PM Olmert Denied Get Out Of Jail Pass For Grandson’s Bar Mitzva

The Jerusalem Post reports: A month after  Ehud Olmert entered prison on charges of corruption, the former prime minister’s request to attend his grandson’s bar mitzva was denied, Channel 2 reported on Thursday.   

Olmert requested to leave the Ma’asiyahu Prison in Ramle only for a few hours to take part in his family’s celebration, Channel 2 reported. The Israel Prison Authority found that Olmert did not meet its criteria for such short hours-long furlough, a source told Channel 2.

Prison Service regulations allow for furlough if the prisoner has served more than a quarter of his sentence or if there is a family event of a family member from the prisoner’s immediate family.

IPS did not comment on the report of the furlough request denial.
