Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein on Sunday said that Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch can be responsible for the appointment of the next Police inspector general despite the fact that he is a member of Israel Beiteinu, headed by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who has been the subject of a police investigation.

Weinstein said that the police investigation of Lieberman is not underway at this time, and therefore nothing legally prevents Aharonovitch from choosing the next Police inspector general.

Following an investigation into Lieberman, the police recommended that prosecutors try the foreign minister for bribery, money laundering and fraud in August.
