Former prime minister Ehud Olmert told a former aide who testified against him in court that another former premier, Ehud Barak, took millions of dollars in bribes as part of arms and weapons transactions, Channel 10 reported on Friday.

The television network obtained audio recordings of Olmert’s conversations with Shula Zaken, his onetime bureau chief who recently agreed to testify against her former boss in the Holyland real-estate corruption trial.

In the tapes, Olmert is heard telling Zaken that Barak “has millions, tens of millions, stashed away in secret bank accounts in Switzerland, or somewhere.”
