Former president and convicted rapist Moshe Katsav's imprisonment is "no victory," and his victims were also victims of the "legal system and the media," one lawyer in the case said according to Army Radio Wednesday.

On the morning when Katsav began his seven-year prison sentence, Kinneret Brashi, a lawyer for rape victim Aleph from the President's Residence, criticized the legal system and how the case was conducted.

"I've got a lot of criticism - not only for the legal system, but also for the media. The victims were not only victims of Moshe Katsav," she said.

"I'm not calling what happened today a victory, and I know that I won't be able to shun my feelings. I know what happened behind closed doors," she said. "This is no victory, but rather a failure and great disappointment for the system, together with the courts."

"This case was sealed. I think that the public needed to be exposed to additional details attesting to the failure of the system. I assume that the day will come and all will be revealed. Only then will I feel that the [legal] system has appropriately fulfilled its duties," Brashi told Army Radio.
