Israeli police question Lieberman again

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli police questioned Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman for the fourth time.

Thursday’s questioning, part of a corruption probe against him, lasted for eight hours.

Police have said they believe they have enough evidence to charge Lieberman, who head sthe Yisrael Beiteinu party, with money laundering, fraud and breach of trust. The investigators may add charges of bribery to the list, Ha’aretz reported Thursday. 

Police reportedly have documents that show Lieberman laundered millions of shekels through a consulting firm run by his daughter and will hand their findings to prosecutors soon.

Meanwhile, Lieberman was named to Time Magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2009. Lieberman appears in the "Leaders and Revolutionaries" category. The list was released Thursday.
