Judge in Lieberman Trial Suggests That Ayalon's Testimony Is Irrelevant

Danny Ayalon, the former deputy to Israel's foreign minister, says Avigdor Lieberman asked him to promote a diplomat for providing information on a separate investigation.

The main judge in the fraud trial of former Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman suggested Thursday that the two sides disregard testimony by a severe critic of Lieberman, his former deputy Danny Ayalon.
