The Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday set a date for next month for US businessman Morris Talansky to complete his testimony against former prime minister Ehud Olmert in the 'cash envelopes' affair. Two weeks ago, Talanksy's lawers announced that their client would be returning to Israel to complete his testimony, in a letter to State Attorney Moshe Lador and Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz. Less than a month ago, Mazuz announced that he planned to indict Olmert on a series of charges related to the affair. Talansky failed to return to Israel in September after US investigators launched their own probe against him. He is currently the target of a federal grand jury investigation in the US on an array of charges, including money laundering, tax evasion and bribery. Rebecca Anna Stoil contributed to this report
