The head of Israel’s diplomatic mission in Morocco, David Govrin, will be returning to his post in the coming weeks now that an investigation into his conduct has concluded, an Israeli diplomatic official tells The Times of Israel.

Govrin was recalled in September after being accused of a slew of sexual and financial improprieties at the newly opened Israeli mission in Rabat.

He argued that the claims were fabricated by the mission’s chief security officer amid a bitter feud between the two.

Officials declined to comment on the outcome of the probe.
