The husband of the former U.S. Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission in Rabat, Morocco, admitted to the sexual abuse of a household staff member on Wednesday. The abuse took place in the State Department-owned housing from August 2010 to February 2013. The 65-year-old man, identified as Labib Chammas, of Reston Virginia  admitted to the sexual abuse of the woman, who worked at the home for 16-years.

Chammas, who was responsible for supervising household staff threatened to fire the staff members repeatedly according to the Federal complaint. The woman, in fear of losing her job, complied with the requests of Chammas which included; massaging his legs, back and eventually his genitalia. During several of these incidents, the victim said that he also grabbed her head or hair attempting to force her into performing oral sex.
