Police managed to contact two additional complainants against Malka in the past two days. The mayor is suspected of raping one of them in his chambers and sexually assaulting the other. "How is it that there is a new complainant all of a sudden," Malka's attorney Avi Himi said in response. "Where are all the secretaries, all the workers? No one saw anything."
Malka is accused of raping, sexually harassing and sodomizing a municipal employee. He is also suspected of extorting a city council member who accepted bribes from a contractor who provides services for the municipality.
