Former prime minister Ehud Olmert continued his testimony at the Jerusalem District Court on Thursday, denying that he exploited Rishon Tours' frequent-flyer miles system when booking his flights.

Olmert is accused of pocketing roughly NIS 90,000 to pay for flight tickets and upgrades for family members.

The former-prime minister, repeating comments he made before the Shavuot recess, said he was unaware of the accounting specifics behind his flights.

"I flew countless trips the last number of years," Olmert said, adding that while he knew he had a wealth of frequent-flyer miles with many different companies, he was never aware of exactly how many points he had accumulated from any specific travel agency.
