Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein has launched an investigation into claims according to which a senior minister in the current government committed sexual offences some 15-years ago.
The report by Israel Radio's Adi Meiri claimed Weinstein had received the complaint last week and was currently in the midst of a preliminary investigation. The Justice Ministry confirmed the report.
Weinstein will have to decide if the case can still be prosecuted despite the fact more than a decade has passed. (Aviel Magnezi and Attila Somfalvi)
