PID dismiss reports of Bar-Lev compensation offer

The Justice Ministry's Police Investigations Department has dismissed media reports claiming that it is weighing a proposed agreement with the former southern police chief which would avoid his indictment in connection with a sexual harassment complaint.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the PID described the reports as unfounded and inaccurate.
Some media outlets claimed that Cmdr. Uri Bar Lev, who has been accused by former Public Security Ministry employee Dr. Orly Innes of harassment, and who has firmly denied the allegation, may pay compensation to Innes, apologize to her, in exchange for which charges would not be dropped.
