Court: Criminal probe request for Harpaz Affair premature

July 16, 2012 17:44

The High Court of Justice rejected on Monday a petition by government watchdog Ometz, who asked the court to order a police investigation into the so-called Harpaz Affair.

The court said the petition was premature.

The Harpaz Affair, named for Lt. Col. (res) Boaz Harpaz,  concerns the appointment of former OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. (res.) Yoav Galant as chief of staff.

Harpaz allegedly forged a document that detailed a strategy on how to appoint Galant.

Galant was appointed to the post but in the end lost the job over a land scandal he was involved in at his home in Moshav Amikam.
