Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has been charged with fraud.

An indictment against Lieberman has not yet been issued, although prosecutors have said a decision will be made next week on the matter.

Israel's Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein said the matters being looked into include money laundering and breach of trust.

If convicted, the head of the right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu party would have to resign from his post.

Lieberman is a senior coalition partner to Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
