Israel's attorney general has indicted Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman for alleged breach of trust but decided not to file a number of more serious charges in a fraud and money-laundering case. Israel's powerful foreign minister was charged Thursday with breach of trust but escaped more serious charges in a fraud and money-laundering case that could jeopardize his political career and upend the Israeli political system just a month before parliamentary elections.
Israel's attorney general announced Wednesday that he plans to indict Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on corruption charges but will allow him a standard final hearing before a charge sheet is issued.
"What matters is not necessarily the formal severity of the crime but the potential harm in the public's faith in the government and whether the person can continue to project integrity," he said.
Moshe Negbi, Israel Radio's legal affairs commentator, said the pressure to step down will be great.
