Olmert's former bureau chief Shula Zaken said Tuesday that she "took one for the team" in the Olmert trial.

"I felt that I was turning into a tool to hurt the former prime minster," Zaken said at a press conference following the ruling of the Jerusalem District Court, which found her guilty on two counts of fraud and breach of trust in the Rishon Tours affair.

Zaken also thanked God, her family and her lawyers for giving her strength to get through the affair.
