Israel’s attorney general recommended that Transportation Minister Yitzhak Mordechai stand trial for sexually assaulting three women during the past eight years. The Justice Ministry said it would seek the lifting of Mordechai’s parliamentary immunity so he can stand trial for sexual assault, indecent acts and sexual harassment. If convicted, Mordechai could face up to seven years in prison.
