Gag Order on Harpaz Documents


Supreme Court Justice Noam Solberg issued an order, Thursday, banning publication on all documents provided by the State Prosecutor's Office to Colonel Erez Wiener and others to assist them in formulating their response to the draft report of the State Comptroller in the Boaz Harpaz case.

Harpaz forged a document, discovered in August 2010, which purported to instruct Yoav Gallant to use a smear campaign to succeed Gabi Ashkenazi as chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces. Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss and Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein are at odds over conducting a criminal investigation into the affair.
