A former Israeli diplomat was indicted for sexual molestation, bribery and fraud. Uriel Yitzhaki, Israel’s ex-consul at The Hague, appeared in Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday charged with molesting a female colleague when he served in the Netherlands in the 1990s. He also is accused of accepting more than $5,000 to obtain an Israeli passport for an acquaintance who did not meet the eligibility criteria. Yitzhaki denied wrongdoing when he was arrested last year, but it was not immediately clear how he would plead to the formal charges.
