Police suspect that Kiryat Malachi Deputy Mayor Yossi Sulimani was involved in an incident of rape, along with the town's mayor Moti Malka who was arrested Wednesday, Israel Radio reported Thursday.

Malka is suspected of repeatedly raping, sodomizing and sexually abusing a female employee of the municipality in an investigation that shocked the country.

Police suspect that on one occasion, Malka called his deputy to the scene, and the two raped the woman one after the other.

According to police suspicions, Malka also took a “sexual bribe” from a single mother in exchange for lowering her municipal land tax (arnona), and accepted a bribe from a contractor in the form of an apartment placed at his disposal, where sexual encounters took place.

Malka has denied the suspicions, saying sexual relations took place with consent, and that he ended the relationship.
