Labor party party leader Shelly Yacimovich responded harshly Thursday to statements by convicted rapist and former president Moshe Katsav defending his innocence.

"The imaginative accusations of the serial rapist former president Moshe Katsav indicate that he has no trace of remorse for the extended abuse that tens of women suffered at his hands," Yacimovich said in a statement.

Responding to Katsav's apology for "any discomfort I may have harmed," Yacimovich incredulously said to Israel Radio, "Discomfort? He raped them!"

She also praised the women who came out publicly against Katsav with their accusations.
