MK Lavie: Police needs to be restructured after sexual harassment scandals

The Knesset Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women and Gender Equality will hold a meeting on Wednesday, despite the election recess, to discuss the spate of sexual harassment incidents in the police.

"Those who are responsible for enforcing the law are serial law-breakers," Committee chairwoman Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid) said Sunday. "Sexual harassment by senior police officials requires a reorganization of the organization that degenerated."

The Yesh Atid MK said sexual harassment by men with authority to women are subordinate to them is a result of an non-egalitarian power structure that should not exist.
