Holyland: Additional State-Witness Forgery Discovered


An attorney for former prime minister and Jerusalem mayor Ehud Olmert has discovered another document forged by Shin Dalet, the state's witness in the Holyland corruption trial. Olmert is among a number of officials standing trial in the approval of the real-estate project after it appeared headed for rejection.

The discovery was made during a Tuesday-morning hearing in the Tel Aviv District Court. Shin Dalet confirmed that he falsified documents to deceive government agencies.
