Colette Avital reveals on 103FM: This is why I have not spoken about the allegations against Peres to date

Colette Avital, a former Knesset member on behalf of the Labor Party, claimed in an interview published in the Haaretz newspaper on Thursday that the prime minister and former president, Shimon Peres, had sexually harassed her. Colette was a guest this morning (Sunday) on the program of Anat Davidov and Golan Yokfaz On 103 FM And explained why she had not revealed the allegations she had made against Peres so far.

At the beginning of the interview, Avital explained that most of the interview she gave to Haaretz – “was not on this issue”, but added that “I debated a lot and in the end I was convinced that if all these years I fought for women and sexual harassment – if this is already known to some women “So it would be very bad if I did not expose him. That is what convinced me.”

Asked if she had debated with herself whether to reveal the claim during Peres’ life, the former MK replied: “I moved to the agenda. I must say I appreciated him and his way, so I chose over the years to ignore and move on. If it hurt his memory I’m sorry, but it’s the truth “When I was asked, I could no longer deny it.”

Finally, she noted that she was not approached by other women who made similar claims: “We were not approached by women who experienced this experience, but many women were approached to strengthen my hands. I did not receive any further reports about Shimon Peres.”
