A new revelation regarding the relationship between IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi and Lt.-Col. (res.) Boaz Harpaz the alleged forger of the "Galant document" was revealed by Channel 1 on Tuesday evening.

According to Channel 1 reporter Ayala Hasson,  Ashkenazi was involved several years back in assisting Harpaz in the assessment of his retirement benefits when he left active service in IDF. Because of the favorable retirement package he received, Harpaz is expected to receive millions of shekels in from the IDF. Since his retirement from active service in June 2008, Channel 1 reported that Harpaz has already received NIS 400,000 from the army.

Harpaz was reported to have also been a beneficiary of a special, unusual arrangement where he is considered to be an officer on vacation without pay and not a retired from active service.
