Cross Examination of State Witness in Holyland Trial

A state witness known only by the initials Shin Dalet is scheduled to undergo cross-examination, Monday morning, in the corruption trial related to approval of the Holyland property development in Jerusalem. Among the defendants in the case are former prime minister Ehud Olmert and entrepreneur Hillel Cherney.

Defense attorneys will try to cast doubts on the veracity of Shin Dalet's testimony that real estate developers tried to bribe a number of public officials.
