A plea bargain for Anat Kamm, accused of passing documents she took from the IDF Central Command to Haaretz reporter Uri Blau, has been formulated at a meeting with senior prosecutors at the justice ministry, Channel 2 reported on Monday evening.

According to the indictment against Kamm, during her military service as clerk in the office of then-GOC Central Command, Maj. Gen. Yair Naveh, she collected about 2,000 documents, some highly classified and top-secret, and copied them to CDs and her personal computer.
