Four people are suspected of setting up a system for trading information about candidates for military service, according to an investigation conducted by the Ministry of Justice’s Privacy Protection Authority. In the course of the investigation, a systematic violation of the privacy of hundreds of thousands of discharged soldiers and civilians was revealed, after information about them was extracted from a database of the Meitav unit in the IDF.
