Lawyer denies consenting to outgoing bar chief exposing himself on video chat

A female lawyer who has accused outgoing Israel Bar Association chief Avi Himi of sexual indecency says she did not consent when he exposed himself to her during a video chat.

“He was a man of status who permitted himself to behave in a way that men are not expected to toward women under their authority, women who need them for professional reasons and unfortunately, this dark behavior still happens today,” the woman, who isn’t identified, tells Channel 13 news.

“This is something that constitutes sexual harassment,” the woman adds, referring to Himi’s conduct on the Zoom call.
