Police concluded their investigation of former MK Yinon Magal and reported on Monday that they found no evidence of a crime.

The case will now move on to the Tel Aviv State Attorney's Office.

In November of 2015, Magal stepped down from his Bayit Yehudi position after allegations were brought against him that he had sexually harassed subordinates before his stint in the Knesset.

Magal has been embroiled in controversy since Racheli Rottner, a writer for Walla News, where he was editor-in-chief until last year, wrote a Facebook post about his unwanted sexual overtures.
