Questioning of Former IDF C-o-S, Spokesman Ends


Another round of questioning under caution ended, Sunday evening for former chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi of the Israel Defense Forces with respect to his involvement in the Harpaz affair, which involves intrigues between the offices of Ashkenazi and then defense minister Ehud Barak, beginning with the selection of Ashkenazi's successor. Ashkenazi is suspected of breaches of trust, obstruction of investigative processes and transferring information to unauthorized sources.

Also interrogated at the offices of the Israel Police's National Fraud-Investigation Unit was Avi Benayahu, the IDF's former spokesman.
