Israeli officials say they have gathered sufficient evidence to charge hawkish politician Avigdor Lieberman with money laundering.
“The police source said there was no doubt about money laundering,” Dep.-Cmdr. (ret.) Boaz Guttman, a former National Fraud Unit investigator quoted a senior police source as saying The Jerusalem Post, reported. “But he refused to talk about bribery.”
Lieberman, the leader of Yisrael Beiteinu party, is under investigation over using Cypriot bank accounts for money laundering. He is also suspected of involvement in fraud and bribery.
