Interrogaton of Former IDF Spokesman Continues


Former spokesman Avi Benayahu of the Israel Defense Forces was interrogated about the Harpaz Affair, Monday morning at the offices of the Israel Police's National Fraud-Investigation Unit. Benayahu is suspected of obstruction of justice, breach of trust, destroying evidence, conspiracy and violating a disclosure ban.

The Harpaz Affair is a series of intrigues between the offices of former defense minister Ehud Barak and former IDF chief of staff Gaby Ashkenazi, which came to light with the selection of Ashkenazi's successor.
