Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Monday announced that the he has decided to shelve an investigation into former Military Intelligence chief Eli Zeira for allegedly exposing the late Egyptian businessman Ashraf Marwan as an Israeli spy.

Weinstein said that following deliberations, he decided to close the case in light of the complex circumstances surrounding it. He noted, however, that the decision does not detract from the severity of the alleged acts.

He added that the implications of the case and their implications for senior civil service officials, both while actively serving and after retiring, were considered, especially the obligation not to reveal secrets.
