No Chance of Lieberman Trial Ending Before Election


Professor Ariel Ben Dor of the law faculty at Bar-Ilan University said, Monday, that there was no chance of the fraud and breach-of-trust trial of Yisrael Beyteinu party head Avigdor Lieberman ending before the January election, following the reopening of the case.

Interviewed by Israel Defense Forces Radio, Professor Ben Dor said, "The chances that the police will finish questioning ten witnesses - some of them abroad, that the prosecution will examine the evidence, that an updated indictment will be submitted and that a full trial will take place in the remaining month before the election - are imaginary."
