JERUSALEM, ISRAEL - APRIL 25: Former Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman (2R) arrives to the magistrate court for the continuation of his trial on April 25, 2013 in Jerusalem, Israel. Concerning incidents which took place more than a decade ago, Lieberman is accused of trying to advance the career of a former diplomat who relayed information to him about a since closed criminal investigation into his business dealings. Lieberman pleaded not guilty on all counts, expressing confidence that he will be cleared of all charges so that he may resume his role as Foreign Minister.
And conducting the whole shebang is no other than Avigdor Lieberman, who cannot even function as minister due to an ongoing trial.
