The Knesset Ethics Committee on Tuesday fined Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman four days' salary for his unexcused absences from the 18th Knesset.

The foreign minister, who argued that his position as the official representative of the government requires him to travel overseas, missed 38 Knesset sittings. However, the committee said that he was able to explain only 16 of those absences. After considering Liberman's position in the government and the travel required, the committee decided to penalize him with only four days' salary.
