Former Israel President Guilty of Rape

Former Israeli President Moshe Katav was found guilty of rape Tuesday and sentenced to prison. Upon hearing the verdict, Katav screamed “It’s all lies” and began to cry. “You have committed an injustice! The judgment is wrong! You allowed lies to emerge victorious!" he yelled at the judge, who ignored him and continued to read her decision. Katav’s victim was a former employee of the Tourism Ministry; he must also pay her restitution.
