Former president Moshe Katsav's attorney, Avigdor Feldman, on Thursday said that he will recommend to Katsav that he appeal the verdict presented in his trial earlier in the day, which said he was guilty of rape and sexual harassment.

Feldman told Army Radio that "We can not accept this verdict." He said, "I tried to convince him [Katsav] to choose a plea bargain back then , but the poor accused ones always put their faith in the justice system and in the end they are proven wrong."

Katsav's attorney also commented on Katsav's condition after the delivery of the verdict, saying, "I am very worried and fearful for him, I hope  he will have strength."
