Regarding the latest legal developments, Channel 2 and Channel 10 both reported Wednesday night that following questioning of Liberman on Tuesday, the charges in the indictment are expected to get more serious, although it was unclear if a new count would be added.

An indictment can get more serious just by adding new evidence, such as alleging that any fraud by Liberman was active as opposed to passive, or by adding entirely new and separate counts.

Channel 2 also reported that during the questioning, Liberman told police that former ambassador Ze’ev Ben- Aryeh "was a great candidate, only if I had not acted on his behalf, he might not have been picked."
