State to request adjournment in Holyland trial

The state on Sunday said it would ask the judge for an unspecified adjournment so that it could properly prepare a whole new round of witnesses after the main witness passed away.
The state reemphasized that it has no intention of declaring a mistrial and will push on with the case despite any temporary delays.
“S.D.”, as the main witness in the trial against former prime minister Ehud Olmert and 15 other defendants is referred to under a gag order – which is still in effect – died in his mid-70s on Friday after multiple hospitalizations and an extended history of poor health.
