Second day of Holyland trial ends by witness request

July 2, 2012 14:28

The second day of the Holyland trial ended after under six hours of testimony for the second straight day, upon the request of the state's main witness.

The witness is officially known only as S.D. because of a gag order protecting his identity.

S.D. was due to testify each day, starting Sunday, from 8:30 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. for nearly two weeks, but in both of the first two days, has tired much earlier around midday and requested a recess after only about half the time allotted.

The Holyland trial, is a massive corruption case involving allegations of fraud and bribery to advance a large construction project in Jerusalem against former prime minister Ehud Olmert, former Jerusalem mayor Uri Lupolianski, former Bank Hapoalim CEO Dan Dankner and 13 other defendants.
