      Attorney General: No New Probe of Harpaz


      Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein said, Thursday, that there was no evidence to justify a probe of reserves officer Boaz Harpaz except for his forgery of last summer's document with the intent to influence the selection of the next chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces.

      Responding to a query by the Movement for Quantity government, Weinstein said there were no other suspects. It had been reported that Harpaz and the wife of former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi had an ongoing correspondence regarding the selection process.
