Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman should be indicted for peeping into an investigation of his own conduct, the police have said.

“Police have recommended charging Lieberman for violation of trust” for illegally receiving documentation about the probe, Reuters quoted police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld as saying on Monday.

He said a former ambassador to Belarus had provided Lieberman the information when the foreign minister served as a parliamentarian.

Lieberman, who is the leader of the far-right Yisrael Beitenu party, is known for his anti-Arab remarks and distrust of the indirect talks between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian Authority.

The police have also advised that he be charged with bribery, money laundering, and obstruction of justice for his actions prior to assuming his ministerial post.

In response to previous scandals, Lieberman had said that he would step down, should he be officially charged, but he has made no remarks about the most recent allegations.
