Businessman's alleged suicide abruptly ends Zaken cross-examination

Shula Zaken's third day of cross-examination in the retrial of the Talansky Affair against former prime minister Ehud Olmert ended abruptly on Thursday when she and Olmert started calling out at each other over the alleged suicide of a businessman known to be close to them and other Likud members.
In the altercation, Zaken showed anger that she perceived Olmert portraying the dead man as a friend of his only and not of hers.
In response, Olmert jumped up and accused Zaken of using the dead man's memory to attack him, saying "it is not right to give her the chance to tarnish me" upon his death.
