Former minister Ben-Eliezer to be indicted on corruption charges, pending hearing

The Tel Aviv District Attorney is leaning toward issuing an indictment against former defense minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer on charges of fraud, bribery, breach of trust and money laundering, it was announced on Wednesday.

Before an indictment is issued, however, Ben-Eliezer will have one more chance to clear his name at a special hearing.

Upon finishing an investigation into Ben-Eliezer in January, police said that there was sufficient evidence to try the former defense minister.
