Former President Moshe Katsav's lawyers filed a motion Monday to extend the period in which he can appeal the parole board's decision not to grant him an early release until May 19.

The motion came a day after media reports emerged that Katsav had decided not to appeal the parole board's decision to turn down his bid for early release after having served five years of a seven year rape sentence.

Katsav's lawyers believe that it was a mistake not to appeal the decision and they filed the motion on Monday in hopes of convincing their client to change his mind.
