Lieberman: Justice Ministry on a crusade against me

Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman attacked the Justice Ministry on Monday, claiming that he has been the victim of a crusade. "I am holding a [letter] from the Justice Ministry from two years ago which announced the renewal of the investigation," Lieberman told reporters during a press conference. "After two years, I've decided I'm not willing to wait any longer." "This is a crusade involving extortion and threats directed towards those associated with me," Lieberman declared. Last year, detectives probed the former minister concerning funds allegedly channeled into an overseas account, which detectives believe went to fund his most recent election campaign.
