Investigation of anti-IDF Draft Group Dropped

The Tel Aviv Prosecutor's Office on Sunday dropped its investigation of the "New Profile" organization. The investigation had been launched over accusations that it was helping potential IDF recruits avoid army service by instructing them to lie about their mental condition, personal ideology, etc.

The investigation was launched last April after police raided the homes of top officials of the group last April, based on information garnered from the organization's web site. Several of the officials were arrested, and released after questioning.
