Former prime minister Ehud Olmert’s one-time attorney and close friend Uri Messer slammed the central witness in the "Talansky affair," Morris Talansky and said "he does not have a truthful bone in his body."

The prosecution lawyers claim that Messer served as a private banker for Olmert, who allegedly received cash contributions from New York businessman Morris Talansky – and perhaps from others – and stashed them in his safe without declaring them to the tax authorities.
