Former foreign minister and Yisrael Beytenu head Avigdor Liberman accused Channel 10 of pressuring decision-makers involved in the case against him, Israel Radio reported.

"A respected journalist is interviewed on [the London and Kirschenbaum program] and says 'If the only thing that's left out of the Liberman case is the Ambassador Affair I will be the first one to take back my accusations against him and say that we need to let him go free of all charges.'" he said.

Liberman continued: "Now that this has happened, they continue attacking - not me, but everyone else involved in the case."

Earlier this month, Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein announced a decision to charge Liberman with fraud and breach of the public trust in the 2008 case involving obstruction of justice by former ambassador to Belarus Ze’ev Ben-Aryeh. However, Weinstein decided to close the main case against Liberman.
