Former State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss on Thursday night sent what Channel 2 news described as a more balanced draft of his final "Harpaz Affair" report to former IDF Chief of Staff (Lt. Gen. res.) Gabi Ashkenazi, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and some of their surrogates.
The draft was only distributed to those involved in the investigation, but a letter regarding the draft was distributed publicly and the main parties involved gave partial reactions.The reactions had to be limited because of a gag order on publishing specific details before the final report is sent out.
The first draft of the report had focused most of its criticism on Ashkenazi and his former aid IDF Colonel Erez Viner, with passing criticism of Barak.
