Military Advocate General (MAG), Brigadier General Danny Efroni, requested on Friday that State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss turn over to him the state's investigative files in the Harpaz affair in order for him to review whether the case has any criminal implications from the perspective of the IDF.

Almost simultaneously, Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein filed a motion to postpone Monday's scheduled Supreme Court hearing to compel the state to produce its evidence on the Harpaz affair to IDF Col. Erez Weiner.

In the last few days, Lindenstrauss provided Weinstein with new evidence regarding, among other things, Weiner's involvement in the affair. At the time of the affair, Weiner was a key aid to former IDF chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi.

The MAG's request to the state and the state's request to the Supreme Court follow reports that Weinstein is considering reopening the case against Weiner.
