Uri Messer's remand extended by 5 days

The Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court on Sunday extended the remand of attorney Uri Messer, a close friend of former prime minister Ehud Olmert who is accused of involvement in a large-scale bribery case that enabled the construction of the Holyland buildings in Jerusalem.
It was announced last week that new evidence was discovered to connect Messer to the case.
