A conversation held between then-foreign minister Avigdor Liberman and Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon will form the main evidence in a new indictment against Liberman, according to a report published Thursday morning by Army Radio.

Allegedly, while undergoing the process of choosing a new ambassador for Latvia in 2009, Liberman told Ayalon that he preferred Ze’ev Ben-Aryeh for the position. This occurred after Ben-Aryeh had allegedly illegally shared information with Liberman over charges against him.

The new evidence against Liberman, compiled from the conversation he had with Ayalon, indicates that the former foreign minister had an active role in promoting Ben-Aryeh - a charge far more serious than the one described in the prior version of the Liberman indictment.
