The State Attorney's Office announced Wednesday that it will charge Kiryat Malachi Mayor Moti Malka with two counts of indecent acts and taking bribes in his capacity as mayor, but will not file charges related to the most serious accusations against him, rape.

The investigation into Malki over the rape and sexual assault allegations were closed due to insufficient evidence, the prosecution said in a statement.

After careful examinations of the two sexual assault allegations, the prosecutor explained, "there is no room to indict Mr. Malka on these two matters, due to the lack of a reasonable chance of conviction."
