Israel’s attorney general reportedly is set to announce that he will file an indictment against the country’s foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, on graft charges.

The draft indictment on charges of fraud, money laundering and breach of trust will be announced Monday or Tuesday, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz.

Lieberman can request a hearing to try to prevent the actual indictment. If he rejects the hearing in order to avoid exposing his defense strategy, the indictment will be served.

Lieberman has said in the past that if he is indicted, he will resign as foreign minister.
