Israeli PM's son pleads guilty to perjury
11/16/2005
 

          TEL AVIV, Nov 15 (AFP): Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's son Omri pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of providing false testimony and falsifying documents at the opening of his trial before a Tel Aviv court.
The trial follows a police investigation into allegations of illegal financing of Ariel Sharon's successful 1999 campaign for the leadership of his right-wing Likud party.
Although the sentence has yet to be decided, Omri's guilty plea will automatically mean that he has to step down as a Likud MP.
Israeli public radio's legal affairs commentator Mosheh Negbi said the false testimony charge carried a prison sentence of up to seven years and the forgery charge up to five.
