A former senior official at a prominent Jerusalem think tank who was fired last year amidst allegations of sexual harassment and embezzlement is also suspected of bugging the institute's computers, court documents released Wednesday showed. Shaul Golan, who served as Chief Financial Officer at Jerusalem's 'Shalem Center' until his dismissal last fall, is suspected of embezzling more than NIS 1 million from the conservative think tank. The fiscal allegations against Golan emerged in the wake of an earlier complaint lodged by a female worker at the center of sexual harassment. The Shalem Center declined comment Wednesday on the newest police allegations. The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court released Golan, who was rearrested on Tuesday, on NIS 3,000 bail on Wednesday.
