The Prime Minister's Office's chief of staff Natan Eshel arrived Tuesday morning at the Civil Service Commission's Investigations Branch for questioning over the alleged harassment of a female staffer in his office.
Eshel, who began his tenure at the PMO in December 2010, extended his leave from office on Monday after legal advisors told him to do so pending a probe into complaints against him.
Three senior staffers brought the case to the attorney-general's office last month, and not the alleged victim of abuse, who has declined to cooperate with the investigations in order to maintain privacy.
The Civil Service Commission is carrying out the investigation after Attorney-General Yehuda Wesintein decided not to refer the case to police.
