Former Mossad chief Yossi Cohen helped his daughter get a job with a prominent company in the United Arab Emirates, reports Channel 12 news.

According to the report, Cohen intervened during the period in which he was still head of the Mossad to get his daughter, Achinoam, a job at a company owned by a man that helped broker the Abraham Accords, which established diplomatic relations between Israel and the UAE last year.

The company’s owner, Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan, also serves as the UAE’s national security adviser.

As head of the Mossad, Cohen was also intimately involved in the efforts to ink the unprecedented peace deal. Achinoam was hired shortly after the accords were signed, and the company opened a branch in Israel, reports Channel 12.
