Meretz leader Nitzan Horowitz says anonymous complaints of sexual harassment must be thoroughly investigated.

He is responding to an outcry over comments made by Intelligence Minister Elazar Stern yesterday, when he said he had “shredded many anonymous complaints” during his time as head of the IDF’s Manpower Directorate and indicated he was referring to claims of sexual assault as well.

Meretz has a “zero tolerance [policy] for sexual harassment,” says Horowitz. “And I’m saying more than that — even an anonymous complaint must be examined.”
