Former president Moshe Katsav arrived at the Supreme Court on Thursday for the third and final day of hearings appealing his conviction for rape and various other sexual offenses.

In the second day of Katsav’s Supreme Court appeal of his rape conviction on Wednesday, defense attorney Zion Amir said the former president’s character had been denigrated by the media during his trial.

Katsav was convicted in December of two counts of rape, two counts of sexual harassment, an indecent act using force, and obstruction of justice. He was sentenced to seven years in prison.
