The Israeli media as a whole enlisted in a campaign to convict former President Moshe Katsav in his sex crimes trial, a member of Katsav's legal team said on Tuesday.

"There was an aggressive campaign, a complete enlistment of journalists. It became impossible to get a single statement into this barricade thrown up by the Israeli media over the past four years," attorney Tzion Amir said.

Amir's statements came during a panel discussion held at Tel Aviv University's Social Sciences Department on the role of the media in the Katsav trial. He was joined by two other legal experts, and three Israeli journalists; Baruch Karah of Channel 10, Gadi Soknik of Channel 2, and Yuval Yoaz from Globes.
