Minister Shalom's Sexual Harassment File Likely to be Closed


The police finished their investigation of a sexual harassment complaint against Energy and Water Minister Silvan Shalom on Tuesday. Barring any dramatic change of events, the Attorney General is expected to order the minister's file be closed.

The closure of the file comes due to the statue of limitations expiring on the harassment complaint, which was filed over an event that allegedly occurred 15 years ago between him and a secretary at his office. Silvan was a government minister at the time of the event.
