The head of the Israel Bar Association allegedly performed an indecent act during a video chat with a young female lawyer, according to a Channel 13 report.

Avi Himi, one of the loudest opposition voices against the government’s plan to radically overhaul the judicial system, allegedly exposed himself during a video conversation and touched himself on screen.

Himi announced last month that he would not run for another term as head of the IBA in protest of the government’s proposal.

Himi denies the Channel 13 report.
