Kadima MK Tzahi Hanegbi was found guilty on one charge of perjury on Tuesday in the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court.

The court found that Hanegbi broke the law when he testified on the 69 political appointments he made between March 2001 and February 2003, while serving as environment minister in the Sharon government.

The court, however, found him innocent on all other charges, including bribery and breach of trust.

Hanegbi could serve up to seven years in prison on the perjury charge.
