Olmert's Adviser Welcomes Prosecution's Decision


Amir Dan, former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s media adviser, welcomed on Thursday night the prosecution’s decision not to hold further talks with Olmert’s former aide, Shula Zaken, about her possibly testifying against Olmert.

"What happened in the last few days is an unprecedented attempt in the history of the Israeli legal system to influence a judge, who is presently writing the verdict," said Dan. "The prosecution realized, belatedly, that this was wrong and eventually decided, and rightly so, to put an end to it."
