The Tel Aviv District Court ruled on Tuesday that former president Moshe Katsav's trial would be held behind closed doors, accepting the prosecution's request. However, the judges are weighing the possibility of making sections of witness testimonies public, after they are heard by the court. Katsav, whose trial is set to begin in September, has been indicted on two rape charges and for other alleged sexual crimes against women who worked for him while he held high office in the cabinet and during his presidency.
