Hillel Cherny, who owns the land in question in the allegedly graft-ridden Holyland project, told Army Radio Tuesday that a state witness had tried to blackmail him.

"This man tried to blackmail me in the past and did not succeed," Cherny said. Channel 2 news reported on Monday that the witness laid down several demands for testifying, including receiving state-funding for dental work.
