In an interview with Gali Tzhal radio station attorney Tzion Amir, who represents former Israel Navy commander Eliezer Marom, said his client "sits quietly, he is relaxed and peaceful and accepted it [Miki Ganor becoming a state witness] with equanimity."

"His [legal] defense is iron-clad, he doesn't need to worry because of state witnesses or nothing," said Amir.

Israeli businessman Miki Ganor is currently in the process of becoming a state witness in the German Submarine affair. He is suspected of offering bribe money to Marom to push forward the purchase of German submarines from Germany for the Israeli Navy.
