Yossi Olmert to Testify in Holyland Case


Yossi Olmert, the brother of former prime minister and Jerusalem mayor Ehud Olmert, is scheduled to testify, Monday in the Holyland corruption case against his brother via teleconference from Washington, DC. According to the indictment, the prosecution claims, among other things, that a bribe to Ehud Olmert by state's witness Shmuel Dachner - who died about two months ago - went through Yossi Olmert.

The case revolves around the Holyland real-estate development near the southern end of Begin Boulevard and the Malcha shopping mall, which was approved after it appeared headed for rejection.
