Justice Ministry Delays Indictment Against Lieberman Over New Evidence

Justice Ministry refuses to comment on whether delay has to do with a Ch. 10 report that police did not gather evidence from members of the Finance Ministry's nominating committee that appointed Ze'ev Ben Aryeh as Israel's ambassador to Belarus.

The anticipated indictment of former Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman was unexpectedly postponed yesterday because the prosecution is considering reopening the investigation to take testimony from additional witnesses. The Justice Ministry had previously said the indictment would be submitted Tuesday.
