The Knesset Ethics Committee reprimanded Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman for boycotting an investigatory committee, saying his actions not only violated Israel's Basic Laws but disrespected the Knesset, its members and broke ethical rules.

The Knesset Ethics Committee decided "to issue a grave reprimand on Minister Avigdor Lieberman," and reasserted that it is his and all his party members' obligation to appear before and cooperate with Knesset committees.

The reprimand came in response to a complaint filed by MK Ahmed Tibi over a published quote by the foreign minister, in which he instructed all members of his Yisrael Beytenu party not to cooperate with the Parliamentary Inquiry Committee on the Integration of Arab Employees in the Public Sector.

Liberman accused Tibi of using the committee to further political aims.
