The classified military documents former soldier Anat Kamm handed to Haaretz reporter Uri Blau have started to be given to the Tel Aviv District Attorney's Office.

The reporter's attorneys, Mibi Mozer and Tali Lieblich, met with the Tel Aviv district attorney and the prosecutor charged with the case on Monday night and began handing over the sought-after information.

Kamm is currently on trial on charges of espionage for allegedly copying 2,000 documents from the office of OC Central Command and giving the copies to Blau.

The process of handing the copies to prosecutors was expected to last several days, and the two sides were still in negotiation over a solution that would enable Blau to return to Israel from London.

Last month, Mozer told The Jerusalem Post that negotiations between the army and Blau broke down after the army demanded that the reporter hand over all the documents he had received throughout his journalistic career. Blau worked for Ha’ir, a Tel Aviv weekly owned by Haaretz, before moving to the parent paper.

Mozer said that during the negotiations, the army also insisted on arresting and questioning Blau and putting him on trial for possession of classified material.
