The testimony given at the trial of former prime minister Ehud Olmert Tuesday by Hadar Zaltsman, tour agent at "Rishontours," was halted after the defense was informed that she had received a 32-page document containing questions and answers from the investigation.

Olmert's lawyers claimed that this was new material, and therefore requested a postponement of the court hearing.
