The investigation into the allegations was launched in September and headed by the National Fraud Unit. The complaint detailed events that had allegedly took place in 2009, when the complainant worked for Kara during his campaign for the 18th Knesset.
Investigators questioned Kara – who vehemently denied the allegations against him – under advisement several times. They also questioned his staff.
Throughout the investigation, Kara maintained that the allegations were bogus, and that the woman made them up after he passed her over for a promotion.
