Police chief Danino fires deputy embroiled in sexual misconduct investigation

National Police Chief Inspector General Yochanan Danino on Wednesday fired the deputy commissioner Nissim Mor, days after news broke of a sexual misconduct investigation against Mor, following a complaint issued by a female subordinate.
A statement put out by the national police headquarters on Wednesday night read that Mor had attempted to submit his resignation during a meeting with Danino earlier in the evening, but that Danino refused and fired Mor, telling him he made the decision after meeting with senior officials from the police manpower branch, the police legal counsel, and the head of the police disciplinary branch, and after reviewing material on Mor’s case sent to him by the Justice Ministry’s Police Investigative Department.
A 36-year veteran of the Israel Police, Mor now becomes the 7th officer with the rank of Deputy Commissioner – the highest rank below national police chief – to resign or be fired amid scandal in less than a year and a half. This includes at least three who resigned or were fired because of sexual misconduct complaints, including Former Jerusalem Police Chief Niso Shaham, who was fired in October 2013 after he was indicted for sex crimes, including sexual assault, against several subordinate female police officers.
