Israeli soldier admits leaking secret files

(ABC)   A former Israeli soldier has pleaded guilty to leaking secret military information to a newspaper.

The woman, Anat Kamm, passed more than 2,000 documents to the Haaretz newspaper.

It subsequently published a report about a possibly illegal Israeli operation to kill Palestinian militants in the West Bank.

Kamm pleaded guilty in return for the prosecution dropping more serious charges, which included spying and harming state security.

She is facing a maximum jail sentence of 15 years, but her lawyer, Eitan Leman, says the documents did not harm Israeli security.

“The indictment now only states that Anat gave documents to an Israeli journalist who worked with the Israeli censorship and never gave any publication to anything which could have had any harm to Israeli security,” he said.

But state prosecutor Hadas Forer-Gafni says Kamm’s offences are very serious and this will be reflected when she is sentenced.

“She took more than 2,000 papers out of the army and gave most of them to another person,” he said.

“These are very serious offences and we are going to demand very serious punishment.”
