To Win Plea Deal, Shula Zaken Proved She Has the Goods

Zaken’s juicy testimony and evidence will help ensure her boss former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert goes to prison.

In asking Tel Aviv District Court Judge David Rosen on Thursday to accept her plea deal in the Holyland corruption case, Shula Zaken sometimes made her long-time boss Ehud Olmert’s offices as a minister and mayor of Jerusalem sound like the backroom of a shady money changer. Olmert, who went on to be prime minister, was last week sentenced to six years in prison in the case.
