The Prime Minister’s Residence’s former caretaker, Menny Naftali, harassed several girls who worked at tthere, reports News1.
According to journalist Yoav Yitzhak, founding editor of News1, a woman who worked at the Prime Minister’s Residence told him personally that Naftali harassed her over a long period of time, through sexual comments, unusual expressions, and attempts to grope her.
Yitzhak says the girl, despite the repeated assaults, refrained from filing a complaint against Naftali and has even prevented others from acting on her behalf due to fear for her privacy and concern that if she complained Naftali would take revenge.
In the past weeks several incidents of sexually improper behavior by Naftali surfaced. It is not clear which reports are based in reality and which stem from efforts by associates of Netanyahu to get rid of Naftali.
Naftali caused Likud and Netanyahu grief when he sued the prime minister and his wife for allegations of mistreatment. The case is still in court.
