Anat Kam's mother told reporters Monday that her daughter behaved very stupidly and trusted people who shouldn't be trusted. She continued, "Anat is holding together, despite that it isn't an easy or simple matter... she will get through this."

The reading of the indictment against Anat Kamm was deferred Monday, according to the espionage suspect's lawyer, Avigdor Feldman, as the defense had yet to receive all the material under examination.

"It appears new agreements were reached with [Haaretz journalist] Uri Blau, who it seems returned all the material in question. The moment we receive the evidence, we will respond to the indictment in full, " Feldman was quoted by Channel 2 as saying.

In an interview with Army Radio, Blau's lawyer confirmed that Blau had returned all pertinent documentation, but the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) is requiring that the 
Haaretz journalist hand over all documents in his possession, including those which have no connection to the espionage case.

"They want to see all of his documents, unrelated to the Kamm case. That request is not legal, its not done anywhere in the world," his lawyer said.

When confronted with the accusation that Blau was hiding in London, his lawyer asserted that "he is not hiding. Everyone knows he is in London. He wants to come home, but doesn't want to be accused of blatant espionage."

According to the Shin Bet, the nearly 2,000 documents that Kamm passed on to Blau were copied during the time she served in the bureau of OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh, which lasted from 2005 until her discharge in 2007.

An indictment was filed against Kamm in January 2010.
