Holyland Affair Olmert Corruption Case Moves Forward Despite Death of Key Witness

Death of key witness weakens prosecution's case against former PM Ehud Olmert and other defendants in Holyland case because parts of his testimony were not subject to cross-examination before he died.

The State Attorney's Office said Friday that it would go forward with the prosecution of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, making the announcement soon after news of the death of the key state witness in the case.
