Mr. Talansky said of Mr. Olmert, “I only know that he loves expensive cigars, pens, watches; I found it strange, but you know. ...” He shrugged.
And, again, to quote Talansky:-
...he said, he always felt “very, very uneasy” about having to give Mr. Olmert money in cash. “I said to myself, this is absolute insanity,” Mr. Talansky told the court, saying he had long felt that “something was wrong.”
Now, he said, he is angry with Mr. Olmert. “This is no way to build a relationship or to run a country,” Mr. Talansky said.
