Analysis: Judges’ silence says Olmert not down for count yet

A combination of recordings of him and his former chief of staff Shula Zaken talking about the case, her journal and her testimony presented allegations that he illegally used funds for expensive cigars, tailored suits and dry cleaning, that he illegally paid Zaken unearned additional funds and that he pressured Zaken into refusing to testify in the original trial against him.
