An Israeli court on Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2004, indicted Appel on charges of bribing Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, further complicating the Prime Minister's clouded legal situation. The indictment also charged Appel with paying a bribe to Vice Premier Ehud Olmert to promote a Greek project when Olmert was mayor of Jerusalem in the late 1990s. (AP Photo/Eli Dassa) ** ISRAEL OUT **
