Israel’s former ambassador to Belarus was indicted for providing Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman with documents relating to an investigation against Lieberman.

As part of a plea bargain, Ze’ev Ben Aryeh admitted to turning over to Lieberman a copy of a police request to Belarus authorities to help in the corruption investigation against the foreign minister. The request reportedly asked for permission to question Belarus banks and government officials.

Lieberman is accused of advancing Ben Aryeh’s position in the Foreign Ministry in exchange for the information.

Ben Aryeh reportedly will be sentenced to four to six months of community service.
