Former Olmert aide Zaken freed from prison after serving time for Holyland role

Shula Zaken was released by the Israel Prisons Service on Monday following a parole board approval of her earl release three weeks ago that cut one-third of the time off of her sentence.

Zaken, who served as former prime minister Ehud Olmert’s bureau chief, was sentenced to 11 months in prison as part of a plea deal after she agreed to testify against him.

She was convicted of multiple bribery charges in the Holyland real estate affair as part of the plea deal, but received a shorter sentence instead of the around six years in prison she likely would have received.
