Israel Police has been investigating Deputy Regional Development Minister Ayoub Kara (Likud), who is suspected of sexually harassing a female employee in the Prime Minister's Office, Army Radio reported on Tuesday.
The employee filed a complaint with the police six months ago regarding the sexual harassment, which according to her took place over two years ago. The police received permission from the State Prosecution to investigate Kara, and he will soon be summoned to a questioning under warning.
According to Army Radio, for six months Israeli police have been investigating whether Kara indeed sexually harassed the complainant, known as S.
Speaking to Army Radio on Tuesday, Kara denied the allegations against him. "My conscience is clear," Kara said. "I am not familiar with the issue I do not have women in my office – one of the reasons for that is so I do not get caught in an uncomfortable situation."
