Alrov building and development company owner Alfred Akirov denied on Sunday morning that he had bribed former prime minister Ehud Olmert to approve the expansion of the Mamilla venture, telling Army Radio that prestigious project was “built according to the law.”
Akirov was responding to an accusation made several days ago and sounded again on Army Radio by journalist Yoav Yitzhak on Sunday, according to which Alrov paid Olmert to ensure the continuation of the project.
