The International Crimes Unit, whose officers have been heading the case, recommended filing criminal charges against the intelligence officer, whose rank is akin to that of a lieutenant-colonel in the IDF.
A gag order has been issued on most of the case's details.
According to available details, Mossad Chief Tamir Pardo asked the Police's International Crimes Unit to take over the investigation once suspicions against the officer arose.
The alleged improprieties took place in 2009-2011.
The officer – who vehemently denies the allegations – has been suspended pending the conclusion of the investigation and any possible legal proceedings.
