Antidepressants found in blood of dead intelligence officer — report

The autopsy of an intelligence officer who died in a military prison last month found traces of antidepressants in his blood, Channel 13 news reports.

Key details about the case, including the officer’s identity and the exact nature of his alleged crimes, remain barred from publication under a court-issued gag order. This decision was made despite the fact that the serviceman’s name and photograph have been widely shared online in recent days.

According to the IDF, the officer, who was found in serious condition in his cell last month and pronounced dead in the hospital a short time later, had been accused of “knowingly committing a number of actions that seriously harmed national security.”
