Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was released from prison on Sunday after a parole board reduced his corruption sentence by a third.
He was forced to demit the office of prime minister after only three years, when the series of charges were levied against him by the authorities.
Olmert was freed from prison last week after serving 16 months of a 27-month sentence for corruption.
The board said the crimes were "severe", but he was "punished for his deeds and paid a heavy price". He faces new charges of trying to smuggle top secret information out of jail by asking his lawyer to get transcripts of his memoirs out of prison without the censors seeing it.
The conditions of his parole were not made public, but Israeli media reported that they include reporting to police twice a month and a ban on leaving the country.

However, Goenka had tweeted his opinions much before the announcement of Ravi Shastri applying for the post made it to the news. According to the report the COA came to know about the matter only after the IPL 2017 final in Hyderabad.
Those close to the former prime minister confirmed that in the coming days, he plans to appeal to the Israeli president and ask him to cancel his parolee status, as promised by President Reuven Rivlin when he signed Olmert's petition for early release.
Under terms of his release granted by Israel Prison Service parole Thursday, he must do volunteer work.
He had been taken to hospital for chest pains, examined, cleared and returned to prison.
He started to serve his term on February 15, 2016, after the Supreme Court had reduced his six-year sentence to 18 months, canceling a previous conviction in the so-called "Holyland case", a corruption affair involving a giant construction project in Jerusalem.
The charges pertained to a period when he was mayor of Jerusalem and trade minister before becoming premier in 2006.
