NAZARETH, (PIC)– A senior official in the Israeli foreign ministry is under investigation for sex crimes against two Asian women, Israeli channel two reported Wednesday.

The Israeli services office is questioning an official in an Israeli embassy in Asia regarding an indictment that two Asian employees filed against him. The women accused him of sexual harassment. The country was left unidentified.

The Israeli foreign ministry has decided to keep the suspect in the country and will not send him to Asia until more details surface.

An annual report prepared by Israeli civil service committee documented a more than 40 per cent rise last year in complaints of sexual assault in official Israeli organizations.

125 investigation files in sexual assault cases were opened in 2010, against 90 in 2009 and 65 three years ago.
