The verdict for former prime minister Ehud Olmert in the Talansky retrial has been set for Monday.

The retrial involves the Jerusalem District Court hearing new evidence based on recordings, a journal and testimony by former top Olmert aide turned state witness Shula Zaken against Olmert - none of which was available for his original trial in which he was acquitted in July 2012.

The underlying allegations are that Olmert illegally received and concealed substantial funds in envelopes from New York businessman Morris Talansky in the late 1990s and the early 2000s.
