El Al Airlines' Senior Rabbi, Yochanan Hayout, is suspected of indecent assault of an employee at the Ben Gurion Airport, Ynet learned Monday. Hayout was questioned by the police, which recommended that he be indicted.

According to the complaint, Hayout abused his position in order to make sexual advances at the complainant, including kissing her against her will. The woman complained to her supervisors, who then took the matter to the police.
