The Jerusalem District Court on Monday opened a cross-examination in the corruption trial of former prime minister Ehud Olmert.

Olmert will be required to answer questions on excerpts from his interrogation and testimonies by other witnesses, and also on documents indicating his alleged involvement in different corruption affairs he is linked to.

During his initial questioning in court, Olmert denied allegations he received cash envelopes from American businessman Morris Talansky and attempts to hide them, as well as allegations he double-billed his trips abroad during his political terms.
