In late 2010, NIR Hefetz, was dismissed from the post of Director of the division for work with the media in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister. The journalist of the newspaper «Maariv» Any Kozin argues that the dismissal Chafetz was initiated by the General security service (Shin bet).
During a normal test which is conducted all high-ranking officers in the office of the head of government with access to classified information, the Shin bet came to the conclusion that Hefetz could become the object of blackmail in connection with the incident, which occurred during the passing of the officer courses.
In 1984, during passage of the IDF officers ‘ training cadet Ronen Alin died during exercises in orienteering. Partner Yalina during the exercise was Hefetz.
According to the official version, Alin died under the wheels of a train, when Hevecam rested on the railroad tracks. After investigation, the Yalina death was ruled an accident, although investigators have considered other versions.
Recall that Hefetz has signed an agreement with the state attorney’s office and became a state witness in the «Case of 4000», one of the defendants which is the head of government.
