Former IDF chief of staff Lt.-Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi called on Attorney-General Yehuda Weinsten to investigate Defense Minister Ehud Barak in the Harpaz Affair, Israel Radio reported on Tuesday.

It is unacceptable that there are documents, recordings and investigation conducted only on one side of the affair, Ashkenazi was quoted by Israel Radio as saying.

The Harpaz Affair was an attempt by Lt.-Col. (res.) Boaz Harpaz to discredit Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant during the selection process to replace Ashkenazi.
