Sex Tape Leads Abbas To Fire Top Aide and Call for an Investigation

Palestinian officials are largely supporting Rafiq Husseini, a former Palestinian intelligence officer and top aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who is embroiled in a sex-for-favors scandal. However, Abbas has now dismissed his aide and called for an investigation after he was allegedly captured in an embarrassing video, here.

The video was shot by a former intelligence officer and shows Rafiq Husseini undressing in a bedroom and calling out to a women to ask such things as “Do I turn off the light or do you? What is the procedure?” These sex-for-influence moments are often so awkward.

Fahmi Shabaneh shot the video after the woman complained to him that Husseini was making sexual remarks when she sought his help with a family problem.

Before his dismissal, various Palestinians urged him to resign, here.

    As I read it the woman went to Husseini regarding the personal matter and was confronted by Husseini’s remarks. She then sought help from a different man who, as a “former intelligence officer, might have had the know-how and the equipment to get the incriminating tape of Husseini.

    Husseini was making suggestive remarks to the lady in his office, so she invited him into her bedroom to prove it?
