Former prime minister Ehud Olmert testified at his Rishontours corruption trial on Monday, saying he "never dealt with the small accounting issues," Army Radio reported.

Olmert is accused of an alleged scam in which charities providing funding for his flights abroad were being double and triple-billed during his tenure as prime minister.

"Nobody ever heard me ask anyone to amass extra money for me," Olmert said during the trial.
