An indictment was filed on Sunday in the Haifa District Court against a youth welfare officer accused of molesting a minor in his care.

Yosef Diamant, aged 61, is alleged to have abused his position to carry out four counts of indecent assault against a 14-year-old boy.

The indictment alleges that in September Diamant took the minor to various beaches in the Haifa area, where he bathed naked with the boy and to have molested him.

Diamant is also alleged to have allowed the minor to drive his car, even though the 14-year-old did not have a driving license.
