Lieberman questioned for third time


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Avigdor Lieberman was questioned for a third time by Israeli fraud squad detectives.

Tuesday’s five hours of questioning marks the third time in less than a week that the Foreign Minister and head of the Yisrael Beiteinu party has spoken to police as part of a nearly 13-year investigation.

He is suspected of bribery, money laundering, fraud and breach of trust. He is accused of receiving a bribe through a consulting firm run by his daughter.

Lieberman was interrogated for five hours last Friday and seven hours last Thursday.

He has requested that the investigation be expedited.
