As the corruption trial against former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman continued Tuesday, the state questioned Ambassador to France Yossi Gal over former deputy foreign minister Danny Ayalon 's claim that Liberman hinted to Gal to appoint Ze’ev Ben Aryeh as ambassador to Latvia.

The appointment of Ben Aryeh is one of the central issues in the trial.

During Tuesday's hearing, Gal denied that he had received any such hints, saying "I don't remember anything like that."  

Gal said that Ben-Aryeh was "picked for his significant experience in general and special expertise in the relevant part of the world."
