A witness in the Rishon Tours corruption trial against former prime minister Ehud Olmert said Thursday that the flight funding requests, "seemed a bit excessive."

Yafit Nisan-Merom, a former employee of the Friends of the IDF, added in her testimony, "We were asked to pay for first class flights for extra people," reported Army Radio.

The witness also said that if the Friends of the IDF had known about the over funding, they would have stopped it immediately because their policy is, "every shekel goes to soldiers."
