Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein was investigating recent complaints that a senior minister allegedly committed sexual offenses years ago against a woman he worked with, Israeli media reported Sunday night.

Weinstein launched a probe to check the credibility of the allegations and whether the statue of limitations applies.



According to Channel 2, the alleged offenses occurred 15 years old.

"This is a political assassination," Channel 2 quoted the unnamed minister as saying in response to the accusations. "I have no idea what they're talking about, I have never heard this woman's name in my life."

Depending on Weinstein's findings from the preliminary investigation, he will then decide whether to launch a criminal investigation of the minister.
