The Police Investigations Department has announced the completion of its investigation into two complaints of sexual offenses against Cmdr. Uri Bar Lev.

Investigators say "sufficient evidence" exists to indict Bar Lev on a charge of an attempted forceful indecent act and sexual harassment against Public Security Ministry advisor Dr. Orly Innes.

However, investigators found that there was "insufficient evidence" to back up a complaint by "Mem," a woman from the North, who claimed that Bar Lev had raped her.

The Justice Ministry's PID stressed that the findings released were the opinions of the investigators only, and that PID prosecutors, who were supposed to prepare a final evaluation of the evidence, have not done so due to an ongoing strike by state prosecutors.
