Parole board approves Shula Zaken's request to shorten sentence

The Israel Prisons Service parole board decided to approve Shula Zaken's request to cut one-third off of her prison sentence on Monday.
Zaken, who served as former prime minister Ehud Olmert's bureau chief, was sentenced to 11 months in prison as part of plea deal after she turned state's witness in the Holyland real estate scandal.
Following the parole board ruling to shorten her sentence, she was expected to be released on January 26.
