State prosecutor tells Ganor plea deal may be nixed for recanting testimony

The state prosecutor informs ex-navy official Miki Ganor the plea agreement struck last year in the submarines corruption investigation could be rescinded after the key witness abruptly recanted his testimony in the high-profile case.

A statement from the Justice Ministry says that Ganor’s amended testimony to police “contradicts his detailed testimony given as state’s evidence” and therefore violates the terms of the partial immunity.

Ganor’s lawyers have until Wednesday to submit an explanation for their client’s sudden change of heart.
