The main witness of the Holyland trial, “S.D.,” as the state’s main witness is known under a gag order, was hospitalized on Thursday morning, leading to the cancellation of proceedings.

It is still unclear what is causing S.D.’s medical problems. Prior to his health crisis, the trial had focused almost entirely on his testimony, delivered four days a week, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The trial involves one of the largest bribery and fraud schemes in the country’s history against former prime minister Ehud Olmert and 15 other defendants. It is unclear when the proceedings will restart.
