Deathbed Promise Changed Olmert Trial

Shula Zaken, former director of the Prime Minister’s Office under then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, was on trial Tuesday in the Holyland corruption scandal.

In a twist that surprised many in the courtroom, Zaken’s attorney took the offensive against Olmert, alleging that everything Zaken did was done for his sake.
