High Court of Justice Judge Salim Jubran stated that the police deliberately avoided investigating the leaks from the investigation of Former President Moshe Katsav and is still declining to do so. Jubran quoted Yoav Segalovich, Head of the Police Investigations Unit, who led the Katsav investigation, as saying that he decided to focus on the main allegations rather than pursue side investigations to find the leaks. He attested that just like he refrained from investigating the seemingly problematic conduct of the defense during the affair, so did he refrain from investigating the leaks.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Israel Beytenu) leaked to Yedioth Aharonoth that the experts in his ministry recommended he initiate cooperation with Kurdish terrorist organization PKK and supply it with weaponry, and that he assist the Armenians and submit complaints against Turkey in U.N. institutions about human rights violations. Officials in the ministry said, on the other hand, that the recommendations were diametrically opposed to those in the “Liberman plan”. “There were various ideas,” a senior foreign ministry official said, “but the foreign ministry’s main recommendation to Lieberman following that discussion was to take steps to prevent a further escalation with Turkey.”
