Police recommended Monday afternoon that Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman be indicted in the alleged police leaks affair.

Police suspect that Israel’s former ambassador to Belarus, Ze’ev Ben-Aryeh, showed Lieberman classified information regarding his investigation by police on allegations that he had accepted bribes and failed to report income to the tax authorities.

The documents had been sent to Ben-Aryeh by the Foreign Ministry to hand over to the Belarus government, whose help Israel required in tracing money transfers from a local bank.
