Anat Kam affair: Israelis were the last to know

While the Israeli press could only vaguely refer to the security affair which was cleared for publication Thursday, readers exposed to foreign media could find extensive reports of the counts journalist Anat Kam will be facing.

The Jewish Telegraph Agency (JTA) released its first report on March 29, where it revealed that Kam, until recently a reporter with the Walla website, has been under house arrest since December 2009, after being accused of leaking classified information during her IDF service to Ha’aretz journalist Uri Blau. According to the JTA report, State prosecution is seeking a 14-year sentence for Kam.
