The prosecution said it is seeking jail time for Ehud Olmert's former bureau chief Shula Zaken, calling her actions a betrayal of the public's trust during sentencing arguments in the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Earlier this year, Zaken was convicted of fraud and breach of trust offenses in regard to the Tax Authority affair, one of the most serious cases of public-sector corruption in Israeli history.

The prosecution said it was seeking jail time because she betrayed the public that put its confidence in her.
