Prosecutors demand a jail sentence of 10-12 years and a fine of NIS 1-3 million for former Yisrael Beytenu MK Faina Kirshenbaum, who has been convicted of bribery, money laundering, fraud and breach of trust in a wide-ranging case into corruption within Avigdor Liberman’s party.

Prosecutors say that as Yisrael Beytenu secretary-general, Kirshenbaum used her powers between 2006 and 2014 to receive illicit gifts — including flights and hotels abroad — for herself, her family, the party and her associates.
