Avignor Lieberman denies charges of fraud and breach of trust, allegations that prompted his resignation



Israel's former foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud and breach of trust at the start of a trial that has put the ultranationalist's political career in doubt.
The charges, handed down by the court on Sunday, relate to the promotion of an Israeli diplomat who admitted in a plea bargain he had illegally given Lieberman details of a police probe against the then-foreign minister.
The allegations led Lieberman, a key ally of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, to resign from the cabinet two months ago.
As head of the hard-line Yisrael Beitenu faction, he joined forces with Netanyahu's right-wing Likud in last month's general election. The joint list came first in the ballot but with fewer parliamentary seats than were forecast.
