Supreme Court: Katsav's actions got progressively worse

November 10, 2011 09:58

The Supreme Court on Thursday said that former president Moshe Katsav's actions got progressively worse after his initial encounters, Channel 10 news reported.

The former president was grinning and seemingly apathetic as the court read the verdict in his appeal.

Moments earlier, the court rejected Katsav's defense regarding his encounter with Aleph, and said he did rape her: a decision which guarantees the former president's prison time.

The justices announced their verdict almost a year after the former head of state was convicted of two counts of rape, two counts of sexual harassment, an indecent act using force and obstruction of justice.
