Court shown police video of Hirschson contradicting himself

Three video clips of former finance minister Avhraham Hirschson defending himself before police against accusations that he stole NIS 2.5 from the National Labor Federation were released on Sunday by the Tel Aviv District Court. The clips, which were screened during Hirschosn's trial, show the former finance minister deny receiving the funds in question, and distance himself from claims that he had a retirement fund arrangement with the federation's accountant, Gideon Ben-Tzor.
