Former president Moshe Katsav on Monday requested that the Parole Board make the conditions of his early release more lenient, two-and-a-half months after he was released from serving five years in prison for rape.

Although the Parole Board released him two years before his seven year sentence had concluded, it imposed a range of conditions for his early release, including that he attend Torah classes at a yeshiva in his hometown on a daily basis and a religious rehabilitation group once a week, and that he must meet with a psychologist at least once a week.

He is not allowed to leave the country, must remain at home between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. and may not be interviewed by the media until December 2018, when his seven-year sentence would have been over.
