Former IDF Military Advocate General to be Attorney General

The Times of Israel reportsIsrael’s government on Sunday approved cabinet secretary Avichai Mandelblit as the next attorney general and Hebrew University professor.
Mandelblit, whose appointment was approved unanimously by the cabinet, holds the rank of major general in the IDF reserves, and served as head of the IDF’s Military Advocate General corps from 2009 to 2011.
It does seem he will travel with some excess bags.
Mandelblit’s appointment is likely to be met with petitions to the High Court of Justice due to his past implication in the so-called Harpaz affair, a convoluted episode of corruption involving IDF top brass, although no charges were ever filed against him.
