Hadas Klein, a key witness in the corruption trial of former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is reduced to tears during an exchange with Netanyahu’s lawyer.

Klein, an assistant to billionaires Arnon Milchan and James Packer, has been testifying about gifts the Netanayhus allegedly demanded from the tycoons.

As the trial resumed, she burst out crying during cross-examination by Amir Hadad, Netanyahu’s lawyer, bemoaning the abuse she has received from parts of the public in the wake of her testimony.

“I had no time off, every second I was called a thief and told I was guilty. I suffer personal suffering, I am not a police agent, I have a family and children,” Klein says, asking Hadad to condemn it.

“I condemn it, you are just a witness and I have no complaints against you. What is being done to you is not fair,” he says.
