Olmert Briefed for Talansky Questioning

Lawyers for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert briefed him yesterday on the questions they plan to ask the American fundraiser Morris Talansky when they cross-examine him on July 17 in the Jerusalem District Court.

During a meeting held at Olmert's Tel Aviv office, his legal team informed him of the preparations for the cross-examination and updated him on the material the police gathered and the contradictions discovered between that material and Talansky's preliminary court deposition on May 27.

The meeting lasted about an hour. According to sources close to Olmert no reference was made to the current police inquiries in the United States.
