Lawyers for the reporter who received top secret Israeli army documents from a former soldier will turn them over to security officials.

Haaretz reporter Uri Blau met with his attorneys in London, where he is in hiding from Israel’s Shin Bet security service, and told them where to find documents given to him by Anat Kamm.

The attorneys are scheduled to return Wednesday to Israel and turn over the documents, Haaretz reported.

Blau previously had turned over about 50 documents to the Shin Bet, but reportedly retained those that could have identified Kamm as his source.

Kamm has since waived her journalistic immunity as Blau’s source and called on him to return to Israel from London with all of the documents she provided him.

Kamm has admitted to stealing about 2,000 documents, which she downloaded on to two discs, while serving her mandatory military service in the Israeli army’s Central Command. She subsequently was a media reporter for Walla, an online news site that until recently was owned partly by Haaretz.
