Ha’aretz reporter Uri Blau returned to Israel Sunday after his lawyers reached an agreement with the Justice Ministry. The ministry said Blau agreed to return 1,500 documents and present himself for questioning to both the Shin Bet security service and police. Following the interrogation, Israel’s attorney general will decide whether to charge Blau with any crimes.
Blau had already returned about 500 documents before leaving on a trip London, where he stayed to avoid arrest. Blau got the classified documents from the former secretary of an Israeli general responsible for operations in the West Bank.
