The Tel Aviv District Court on Sunday published transcripts of former president Moshe Katsav's testimony in his rape trial, in which he speaks about the central witness and victim in the case.

Aleph, lied to the court, Katsav testified. "She knows that she was compelled to lie and she doesn't want to elaborate on the lie."

The former president also denied raping Aleph at the Jerusalem Plaza Hotel in 1998. "I wasn't with Aleph at any hotel - that I say with certainty."
