Acting governor of Lebanon’s Beirut, Nassif Qaloush, has resigned from his post weeks after a former employee accused him of sexual harassment, the local media have reported.

Last month, a former employee Hoda Sankari publicly released a covertly filmed video appearing to show Qaloush making inappropriate overtures, the Daily Star wrote.

In the video, Sankari speaks to a camera and accuses Qaloush of sexually harassing her before showing footage of an incriminating conversation between them.

Qaloush has filed lawsuit against her for fabricating the allegations against him.
