Lieberman Trial to Open Sunday Saving Israel's Foreign Ministry for Lieberman Is 'Shaky Ethics,' Say Jurists

Lieberman says he has an agreement with Netanyahu that the latter will hold the position of foreign minister until the former is cleared by courts.

In his frequent interviews on the coalition talks, former Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman sounds like someone whose place in the next cabinet is assured. Yet his political fate will be decided at the trial that opens on Sunday, where he faces charges of fraud and breach of trust for allegedly promoting an ambassador who gave him confidential information about a police investigation against him.
