A group of leading international journalists sent a letter to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein late Monday night urging him to drop all charges against Ha’aretz journalist Uri Blau in the name of press freedom.

Blau, who published excerpts from a cache of classified military documents, was charged last month with aggravated espionage for his alleged unauthorized possession of the classified materials and, if convicted, could face a seven-year prison sentence.
