Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is refusing to resign despite being charged with fraud and breach of trust. 
 
The charges come five weeks before a general election which his right-wing party – which is in a coalition with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party – is expected to win. They relate to his alleged role in a financial scandal that dates back more than a decade.
