Legal Forum Praised Decision to Drop Liberman Case


The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel welcomed the decision of the Attorney General not to appeal the case of Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman. The head of the Forum, Nachi Eyal, said the decision is correct, "but the attorney must evaluate the situation," he added.

Liberman, head of the Yisrael Beytenu party, was exonerated of all charges of fraud and bribery following a lengthy investigation. The court ruled that although Liberman's political appointments raised eyebrows, they were not illegal.
