Former New York City top cop Bernard Kerik was let out of prison briefly Monday to testify in the Bronx about the scheme that landed him behind bars.

Kerik testified against two friends accused of lying to a grand jury when they denied paying for renovations at Kerik's apartments in Riverdale.

Prosecutors say in exchange, Kerik helped the brothers get a city contract.

Kerik said he could not recall details of the renovations.

The case against Frank and Peter DiTommaso dates to the 2006 grand jury investigation of Kerik, who's serving a 4-year term in federal prison.
