The hearing of the impeachment trial of the former president is expected to last around two days.
It is the second time that a former president has been impeached.
The first was the impeachment of former Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu in a vote in the Israeli parliament.
Since then, a slew of high-profile figures have been indicted for various alleged crimes including fraud, corruption, embezzlement, and abuse of power.
As of now, five people are under investigation for their alleged involvement in alleged bribery and embezzlement.
A separate case has been opened against former President Nicolas Maduro for allegedly abusing his power by interfering in the presidential election.
