The State Attorney's Office said at Wednesday's hearing on the possibility of delaying former president Moshe Katsav's prison sentence that the defendant should be treated like any citizen.

Aryeh Peter, the State Attorney Office's representative at the hearing said that "legally, this is a regular case. The defendant was charged with a felony."

"Katsav should start serving his sentence before the appeal begins," Peter added. "It is in the public interest for Katsav to go to jail right away."
