Attorney-general Yehuda Weinstein intends to inform Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman some time this week and as early as Monday whether he intends to indict him on corruption charges, Maariv reported on Sunday.
Lieberman has stated publicly on several occasions that if Weinstein recommends an indictment, he will quit his posts as foreign minister and Israel Beiteinu leader, but only after a hearing that might not take place for several months. He has also insisted repeatedly that he would keep Israel Beiteinu in the coalition.
The party will hold a convention on Wednesday in which it will demand the toppling of the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip.
