  1. [/i]Israel recalls 'naked ambassador'

    Israel's leadership has been shaken by a string of scandals
    Israel has recalled its ambassador to El Salvador after he was found drunk and naked apart from bondage gear.
    Reports say he was able to identify himself to police only after a rubber ball had been removed from his mouth.

    A foreign ministry official described Ambassador Tzuriel Refael's behaviour as an unprecedented embarrassment.

    The incident, which happened two weeks ago, has renewed calls for a radical overhaul of the way Israel appoints and promotes its diplomats.

    San Salvador was Mr Refael's first post as ambassador. He was promoted in 2006 from a technical position in the ministry which had involved several foreign postings.

    We're talking about behaviour that is unbecoming of a diplomat

    Foreign ministry spokeswoman
    He was being recalled, although he had not broken any laws, foreign ministry spokeswoman Zehavit Ben-Hillel told reporters.

    She confirmed that lurid reports of the incident in the Israeli press were accurate.

    "We're talking about behaviour that is unbecoming of a diplomat," she said.

    Israel has been rocked by a recent series of misconduct and corruption scandals, shaking public confidence in the political leadership.

    Haaretz website reports that police found Mr Refael in the Israeli embassy compound where he had been found bound, gagged and naked apart from sado-masochistic sex accessories.

    In 2006, Israel's diplomatic service was criticised by the public watchdog for its appointments system.

    The state comptroller's report singled out the foreign ministry appointments committee for its inadequate examination of candidates and lack of transparency.
     
  2. Yes, I should have checked to see what other wags might have been faster out of the trap this morning.
     
  3. Surely you mean 5 days ago.
     
  4. So, it would have been OK if he'd been covered in cling-film then...
     
  5. "The state comptroller's report singled out the foreign ministry appointments committee for its inadequate examination of candidates and lack of transparency."

    I think the lack of transparency in the Ann Summer's nurse's uniforms is far more serious.
