Justice David Rosen was leaning towards rejecting the plea bargain reached between Shula Zaken and the prosecution. In the end Rosen decided to accept the plea bargain.
Judge Rose said, “After taking into consideration the recordings provided by Zaken of her and Olmert, I can see that she has not brought them forth to ‘clean out her chicken stalls.’ What do we have here? Evidence for a new case of obstruction and strengthening of evidence in favor of the Holyland case. I don’t been reinforcements. Shula Zaken is not just a secretary. She is a significant criminal.”
Zaken will serve 11 months in prison.
