The unnamed alleged sexual harassment victim of former Public Security Ministry chief Hagi Peleg has accused another man of abuse on Friday, according to a Channel 2 report.

The woman, described as a high-level consultant to the ministry, reportedly has accused Deputy Police commissioner Ori Bar-Lev of sexual harassment as well.

Peleg resigned earlier in the week when suspicions were aroused that he may have been trying to obstruct a ministry internal investigation into the sexual harassment claims against him.

Sources within the ministry told Channel 2 that Israel Police Insp.-Gen. Dudi Cohen would make a decision regarding the claims against Bar-Lev and Peleg in the near future.
