A two-day hearing to determine whether to indict Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on charges of fraud and money laundering began Tuesday.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein will decide whether or not to press charges after Lieberman’s legal team defends him against the allegations.  Prosecutor’s have charged that Lieberman received “millions of dollars” between 2001 to 2008 when he served as an MK and then government minister.
