Rachel Risby-Raz, the central witness in the Rishontours corruption case, defended former prime minister Ehud Olmert in the Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday.

"All ministers fly abroad with two assistants, and the state pays," Risby-Raz said. "Olmert flew alone without help, and suddenly he's a bad person?"

Risby-Raz was Olmert's foreign relations coordinator at the the time he allegedly double and triple-billed charities for trips abroad.
