TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Golan Cipel, who played a key role in the resignation of New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey, returned to Israel but declined to discuss their relationship.

Cipel, 35, briefly spoke to reporters outside his family's home in Rishon le-Zion, near Tel Aviv.

"I've been through a very difficult period. I came to this land to be with (my) family," said Cipel, with whom McGreevey said he engaged in a homosexual relationship.

Cipel declined to discuss the McGreevey affair saying it is in legal hands.

Earlier he told Haaretz he is straight and initially had no idea McGreevey, his former boss, was gay. Cipel alleged McGreevey had made unwanted sexual advances, and he planned to sue the governor for sexual harassment.
