Israel recalls ambassador from Morocco amid harassment probe - 2022-09-06 09:54:34
A diplomatic incident, such as Israeli diplomats harassing Moroccan women, could damage the nascent ties between the countries.
The Foreign Ministry recalled Ambassador David Govrin from his posting in Morocco as it continued to investigate sexual harassment allegations and other irregularities at the Liaison Office in Rabat, a ministry spokesman confirmed on Tuesday.
Among the allegations are sexual harassment, exploiting local women, not reporting gifts and severe workplace disputes involving Govrin.
IsraelN.com comments: Often, senior foreign diplomatic appointments have a lot of prestige, and they are political appointees. It is unprecedented that an Israeli emissary is recalled in such circumstances.Original Article:
