Justice Ministry: Former defense minister Ben-Eliezer to face criminal charges

Former defense minister Binyamin “Fuad” Ben-Eliezer will face charges in a series of cases against him, after Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein decided to dismiss the objections of Ben-Eliezer’s attorneys in a pre-indictment hearing, the Justice Ministry announced Tuesday night.
The charges – which span 5 different cases - include bribery, money laundering, fraud, breach of trust, and tax crimes.
In a statement Tuesday night, Ben-Eliezer’s attorneys said that they have full confidence in the courts, and that “despite the grave medical condition of Fuad, we will fight to clear his name.”
