Lieberman petitions High Court, demands Mazuz finally decide on indictment

Isreal Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman filed a petition to the High Court of Justice against Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz on Sunday, requesting that the court order Mazuz to make a final decision in the case against Lieberman, nearly ten years after it opened. Lieberman has been under investigation for alleged illegal connections overseas and for irregularities in funding during the 1999 election. "After ten years of investigation…I demand that the attorney-general accept my request and either issue an indictment against me or close the case," he said.
