Zaken's Lawyers: State Missed an Opportunity


Shula Zaken’s attorneys, Ofer Bartal and Dov Gilad Cohen, responded on Thursday night to the prosecution's decision to stop the talks with her regarding her testimony against former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

“The judiciary and the public were given a golden and unique opportunity, to reveal all that happened in the immediate vicinity of Ms. Zaken throughout her work. It appears as though the opportunity has been missed for the time being. Ms. Zaken tried to expose events involving others that she was witness to. She reached her hand to the State and the State refused to shake her hand. We hope that this decision will change in the future, in light of it being wrong,” they said.
