Second PMO Staffer Quits in Natan Eshel Affair


Yoaz Hendel, the head of the Prime Minister's Office department of public affairs has quit amidst the Natan Eshel affair. Eshel left his position after Hendel and two other co-workers accused him of harassing a fourth female employee. The woman, known only as "R" refused to personally file any complaints or take part in the investigation. Both Hendel, Eshel and about a dozen other PMO staffers were questioned in the investigation. Eshel admitted to using R's computer without her knowledge and displaying photos of her taken at a public gathering. Eshel said he was relieved that the media knew that the affair was not sexual in nature and agreed to leave his position. He was replaced by Gil Sheffer. Hendel will be replaced by Liron Dan.
