Court: Criminal probe request for Harpaz Affair premature

The High Court of Justice rejected on Monday a petition by government watchdog Ometz, who asked the court to order a police investigation into the so-called Harpaz Affair.
The court said the petition was premature.The Harpaz Affair, named for Lt. Col. (res) Boaz Harpaz,  concerns the appointment of former OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. (res.) Yoav Galant as chief of staff.
Harpaz allegedly forged a document that detailed a strategy on how to appoint Galant.
Galant was appointed to the post but in the end lost the job over a land scandal he was involved in at his home in Moshav Amikam.
