Former MK Colette Avital has alleged that former prime minister and president of Israel Shimon Peres sexually harassed her in the 1980s, Haaretz reported on Thursday afternoon.
In an interview published in the Hebrew edition of Haaretz, Avital, who served as a Labor MK for seven years, testified that Peres “pinned [her] to the door and tried to kiss [her],” at the end of a meeting in 1984, during his time as prime minister.

In addition, Avital told Haaretz that she was invited to his hotel room for breakfast while they were on a diplomatic mission in Paris at the same time, during Peres’ time as head of the opposition.

According to Avital, Peres attempted to push her towards the bed upon her entry to his room, and she resisted his attempts to do so before leaving.
Avital alleged that she reported the incident to Peres’ advisor and former deputy minister Yossi Beilin, and requested that she not be left alone with him the next time he came to Paris, where she was serving as a diplomat at the time.
