Aleph, the rape victim who brought sexual assault charges against former president Moshe Katsav, expressed her satisfaction with the Supreme Court decision denying his appeal on Thursday.

"The severity of the punishment is not as important as the decision," Aleph, who remains anonymous, said from the Tourism Ministry. Katsav will begin a 7-year prison sentence in December.

Aleph also encouraged other women who have been victims of sexual assault to speak up. "I hope that women are not afraid to complain," she said.

Aleph's lawyer added that Katsav's punishment was appropriate. "Now the criminal process has finally come to an end, the court has ruled, and the person who hurt her has received the punishment he deserved."
