Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Tuesday will begin his testimony at the Jerusalem District Court for corruption charges.

On Monday, the court rejected Olmert's request to delay his testimony by two weeks for medical reasons.

Sources close to the former prime minister said he does not plan to fight the prosecution while on the witness stand.
