Rahamim ‘Rami’ Shy is a former policy advisor who worked in Obama’s White House.

Rahamim ‘Rami’ Shy, who co-ordinated the US’s strategy to combat terrorists during the Barack Obama administration, was charged with child sex offenses in a British court earlier today. The former senior policy adviser’s trial is expected to begin in August this year. The 46-year-old is accused of arranging the commission of a child sex offense, as per a report.

He was part of the US government’s plan to keep an eye on the global terrorist network including the activities of Taliban and Al Qaeda.
