The Supreme Court on Monday is set to hear an appeal by Anat Kamm, the former IDF OC Central Command secretary convicted of serious espionage crimes, including passing of classified documents to Haaretz journalist Uri Blau.

Kamm appealed to the Supreme Court after the Tel Aviv District Court sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison last fall, arguing that her sentence was too harsh.

She was convicted as part of a plea bargain, under which she admitted gathering and storing classified military documents during her mandatory army service and transferring them to Blau.

Under the plea bargain, the amended indictment dropped two far more severe charges against Kamm of deliberately intending to harm state security, an offense which carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
