Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court on Sunday morning convicted prosecution lawyer Liora Glatt-Berkovitch on leaking details on the Cyril Kern investigation to Haaretz in violation of obligations governing the duties of state prosecutors. Glatt-Berkovitch admitted to the charges against her. The more serious charges of fraud and dereliction of duty were dropped.
Glatt-Berkovitch was convicted as part of a plea bargain according to which she is to receive a suspended sentence and a fine of NIS 10,000.
The terms of the plea bargain dictate that Glatt-Berkovitch must leave the prosecutor's office and that her pension benefits will only be paid out starting in five years.
Excuse me while I puke. This is a disgrace! A slap on the wrist for "one of their own." For those of you who read Hebrew, read the talkbacks of enraged Israelis at the Yediot and Maariv web sites.
