A letter claiming Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar behaved inappropriately towards a female employee in his office is not expected to affect his chances of being appointed to a ministerial position in the next government.


The letter, alleging Sa'ar made inappropriate sexual advances toward a female employee, was recently obtained by a number of Likud Central Committee members. However, following an initial examination, the Justice Ministry found no grounds to prevent Sa'ar's reappointment.

The letter, which was addressed to Benjamin Netanyahu, urged the prime minister to refrain from reappointing Sa'ar. It was signed in the initials of the female employee who supposedly sent it as a complaint against her superior, but she denied ever having written it.


The Movement for Quality Government in Israel turned to Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein and Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and demanded that a criminal investigation be launched.


Last week AG Weinstein instructed police to conduct a preliminary investigation into the letter to determine its credibility.
