"I will continue to be proud of our father, the eighth president of Israel," he told the press as his father left the courthouse.

"This trial...is not part of Israeli morality," Katsav's son said. "They judged according to their feelings. We will continue to stand tall. The whole nation will know that my father, the eighth president, is innocent."
