Former president and convicted rapist Moshe Katsav will be under constant supervision by a prison guard in order to prevent him from committing suicide, Prison Services Commissioner Aharon Franco announced in a Knesset Control Committee meeting on Tuesday. Katsav is scheduled to begin his prison sentence on Wednesday.

Franco said that the special measures would be taken at the beginning of Katsav’s seven-year sentence, during a meeting on prison suicide rates. A prison guard would be assigned to ensure that Katsav does not bring harm to himself.
