Former Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday dismissed a flood of "rumors and quotes" about the Belarus Ambassador Affair, asserting that they had no connection to reality.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalonon Monday night unequivocally denied reports broadcast by both Channel 2 and Channel 10 which claimed he had given police testimony against his former boss, Yisrael Beytenu party leader Liberman.

The allegations concern the indictment against the former foreign minister in the so-called Belarus Ambassador Affair, with more serious accusations that could lead to new charges of active, rather than passive, fraud.

In a statement Liberman said that he wanted to emphasize, that rumors and quotes attributed to him and his "associates" that circulated the media, "did not exist... and their purpose was not particulalry sophisticated manipulation, to disrupt the proceedings and throw sand in the eyes of the public."

"All that I have to say, I will say in the proceedings of the investigation by the police and the court," he added.
