Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday responded to the seven year sentence given to former president Moshe Katsav, saying “This is an important day for justice in Israel.”

"It showed that there is equality before the law and that no one is above the law. It also showed that women are equal and it is forbidden to harm them,” Netanyahu stated.

He added that the sentence illustrates how different Israel is from it’s surrounding countries, referring to the Jewish state as “a fortress of the rule of law.”
