Ya’alon: We must encourage sexual harassment victims to come forward

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Thursday called for more women who have suffered sexual mistreatment to come forward and file complaints, saying that fear and silence stifle efforts to deal with such wrongdoing.

“I think that we need to encourage people to come forward and file complaints so that we are able to handle them. Unfortunately, we have many cases in which women do not dare to complain due to fear about what will happen to them,” Ya’alon said in an interview with Army Radio.
