Anat Kamm, who gave away classified info from the military to a reporter for Haaretz has been sentenced to prison
After the Tel Aviv District Court sentenced Anat Kamm to four-and-a-half years imprisonment on Sunday, state prosecutor Hadas Porrer-Gefni told reporters the panel of three judges had given a “strong message” to young people on mandatory army service.
“The court said that what the defendant has done is not just ‘something dumb’ but emphasized, just as we had done, that this is actually a very severe offense,” Porrer-Gefni said, referring to Kamm’s testimony that she had transferred the classified documents out of “mere stupidity.”
The prosecutor said young people should be made aware of the sentence before embarking on their mandatory IDF service.
“The judgement should be learned in every school and every basic training unit in the army, so that anyone who thinks he can take classified documents knows what punishment he will get,” she said.
There's a messasge and a lesson to be learned here alright: don't throw away your future over something like this.
