The Tel Aviv District Court has given the State two days to file a detailed motion for the gag order on an ex-IDF interrogator's response to the State's defense in his case. The State previously claimed the plaintiff's response might expose state secrets.
The ex-interrogator is suing the State for NIS 5.5 million for disclosing his name, among other reasons. The plaintiff was the chief interrogator of Lebanese Mustafe Dirani, who was abducted by Israel to gain information on kidnapped Israeli navigator Ron Arad's whereabouts. (Gilad Morag)
