Attorney-general to weigh rape indictment of ex-prison warden

January 15, 2016 02:38

There is evidence to support allegations that a senior Prisons Service warden raped a female subordinate on a number of occasions, police said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement was issued at the conclusion of their investigation of Shoham Yosef, the former warden of the high security Ayalon Prison.

According to police, investigators “found evidence that on a number of occasions during his time serving in the Prisons Service, Shoham Yosef committed the crimes of rape and sexual assault against a female subordinate while exploiting the power of his position.”

The police will now hand the findings of the investigation over to the Attorney-General’s Office, which will decide whether to file an indictment.
