Zaken Won't Testify Against Olmert

The prosecution on Thursday informed attorneys representing Shula Zaken, the close aide of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, that it would be stopping the talks with them regarding the possibility of Zaken testifying against Olmert.

"The decision was made while examining the totality of the circumstances and weighing various considerations, including the advanced stage of the cases against Zaken - which have reached a point where one can request to present additional evidence to the court only under highly unusual circumstances, along with the fact that Ms. Zaken brought no supporting evidence from outside,” said a statement from the prosecution.
