Yechimovich Won't Sit in Government with Defendant

Labor party leader Shelly Yechimovich reacted, Friday, to the indictment of Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on fraud and breach of trust charges by saying, "I won't sit in a government with one who sits in the defendant's chair facing an indictment."

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, she continued, "I cannot see a scenario where someone sits in the defendant's chair and serves, at the same time, as a government minister."
