Police have found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing in an affair that rocked the military's senior command last year, involving a former intelligence army officer and a forged document, it was announced on Wednesday.

In 2010, Lt.-Col. (res.) Boaz Harpaz. Harpaz, a former intelligence officer, forged a document that detailed fictitious plans to damage the reputations of senior IDF officers.

The forged document was intended to falsely gave the impression that a PR firm has been hired by Gen.(ret.) Yoav Galant, who had been a senior candidate to become IDF chief of General Staff, to damage the reputations of other competitors for the post of chief of general staff.
