After announcing his resignation last week in the wake of allegations of sexual indecency, Israel Bar Association chief Avi Himi files a police complaint against a female lawyer who accused him of exposing himself to her during a Zoom call.

Himi has insisted the incident was consensual, which she has denied. Police are examining the matter.

In the complaint to police, Himi asks that they question him so he can present his version of events. He says he will give them access to his correspondence with the lawyer, which, he asserts, “will completely disprove her false version.”

He also complains about “the widespread sharing of an intimate video of me in a way that causes fatal and lasting harm to my good name, privacy, and family, to the point of the complete destruction and trampling of all aspects of my life and my family’s life.”
