Ben-Eliezer to be arraigned today for bribery, money-laundering

 Former defense minister and Labor party power broker Binyamin Ben-Eliezer is set to be arraigned Monday on charges of bribery, money-laundering, fraud, breach of public trust and tax offenses.

Because of his poor health, Tel Aviv District Court Judge George Kara ruled he did not have to attend the remand hearing.

In December, he was indicted along with five others: businessmen Jacky Ben-Zaken, Charlie Yehuda, Roi Mutzfi and Avraham Nanikashvili, and Ben-Eliezer’s former bureau chief Ayelet Azoulay.
