Former president and convicted rapist Moshe Katsav, said Thursday to Israel Radio that he respects the court's decision, but will continue to fight for his innocence until his last breath.

In an interview with Israel Radio, Katsav said that he was experiencing a storm of emotions, and that his mental condition was serious. However, referring to rumors that had spread, he said that he had no intention of harming himself.

Katsav said that the Supreme Court made a bad mistake in deciding to convict him, "based only on impressions from witnesses." He added that the court did not give him a proper opportunity to defend himself, after a five-and-a-half year media lynch.

The former president claimed that never in his life has he hurt a man or woman.
