Haaretz lawyers give Anat Kamm documents to state
The lawyers hope that the return of the documents will help end the matter and allow Haaretz reporter Uri Blau to return to Israel.
Lawyers representing Haaretz on Monday passed on to the Tel Aviv district attorneys the classified documents journalist Uri Blau had been holding since he received them from military whistleblower, Anat Kamm.
Haaretz lawyers Mibi Mozer and Tali Lieblich met with Tel Aviv district attorneys Ruth David-Blum and Hadas Forer-Gafni to transfer the documents Anat Kamm allegedly stole when she was a soldier in the GOC Central Command and then leaked to Blau.
The parties involved are currently negotiating to resolve the matter and allow Blau, who has been in London since the affair first broke, to return to Israel.
Blau's lawyers returned last week from London, where they met with their client and received information on the location of the classified documents still in his possession. Mozer and Lieblich said that Blau had not been holding any of the documents in London, and added that they hope that the return of the papers would bring about the end of the affair.
Kamm, 23, had previously urged Blau to return to Israel and give the documents to security services, saying she had given up her journalistic immunity as a source. Kamm has been indicted in Tel Aviv District Court for aggravated espionage.
