A former Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court judge is suspected of sexually harassing a female subordinate over a nine-year period, police said on Wednesday.

The judge allegedly carried out sexual offenses while serving as a court register and after he became a judge, from the years 2000 to 2009.  The alleged victim was a female subordinate tasked with administrative duties in the court, police said.

"The Lahav 433 unit concluded that evidence exists to back up suspicions of sexual offenses," police said in a statement.

The Unit's head, Cmdr. Dudu Mantsur, and the head of the Israel police Investigatios Branch, Cmdr. Yoav Seglotich, adopted the unit's conclusions, and passed the case on to central state prosecutors for a decision on whether to prosecute the ex-judge.
