A young woman has filed a complaint against Justice Minister Haim Ramon claiming that he sexually harassed her. Ramon strongly denied the accusation. The investigation was launched after the woman came forward claiming that Ramon tried to forcefully kiss her during a public gathering about two weeks ago. On Tuesday, the court partially lifted a gag order that was issued after the complaint was filed. The court did not allow the press to reveal any personal details of the accuser. It was reported that the woman initiated contact with Ramon at the gathering and asked to be photographed with him. Later, she claimed that Ramon forcefully tried to kiss her. Ramon claimed that the woman kissed him and gave him her phone number. He urged the police to summon him to an interrogation so that he could clear his name. Israel Radio reported that police sources called the incident "borderline" and estimated that the case would soon be closed.
