Israel asks jailed former minister to help Katsav acclimate to prison life

| |

Former Minister and current prison inmate Shlomo Benizri has been asked by senior Israel Prisons Service officials to help former President Moshe Katsav to become accustomed to life in jail − if the latter begins his sentence soon.

Benizri, who was jailed in 2009 for four years for bribery and other offenses, and is serving his time in the wing for Orthodox prisoners at Ma’asiyahu Prison, was approached a few weeks ago about assisting Katsav.

If Katsav’s appeal to the Supreme Court is rejected, he will begin serving a seven-year sentence for rape and other sex-related offenses.
