Court delays Katsav’s prison term

| |

The Supreme Court granted an appeal by former President Moshe Katsav, to postpone the commencement of his jail sentence pending a ruling in his appeal on the matter, Ynet learned Wednesday.

Katsav was sentenced to seven years in prison after he was found guilty of rape and sexual assault.

Justice Yoram Danziger, presiding over the hearing, ruled that “it cannot be said that prospects for Katsav’s appeal are without grounds, and this is being said without concluding anything on the matter”.
