Trial of Avigdor Lieberman to Begin Tomorrow


The trial of former foreign minister and current MK Avigdor Lieberman will begin on Sunday afternoon. 

Lieberman is accused of fraud and breach of public trust in a case involving Israeli diplomat Ze'ev Ben Aryeh. Lieberman allegedly recommended Ben Aryeh to an ambassador role in Belarus in exchange for the handing over of confidential documents regarding a criminal investigation into Lieberman's business dealings.
