The lawyer of Ha'aretz reporter Uri Blau has stated that Blau has returned to Israel without receiving any guarantees that he would not be prosecuted for his part in the Anat Kamm affair in comments to Army Radio on Monday.

Blau's lawyer, Mivi Mozer told Army Radio that Blau returned after an agreement was reached with the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) that "weighed in appropriate manner state security interests and a free press."

"The fact that Uri would have under the arrangement to hand over hundreds of documents to the security services, even those he did not receive Kam, does not infringe the freedom of the press, because the Shin Bet has agreed not to trace the sources [of the leaks]," added Mozer.
