Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz announced Monday that the state was not going to appeal the ruling against former justice minister Haim Ramon that his sentence does not carry with it moral turpitude. On March 30, 2007, Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court upheld Ramon's conviction on charges of committing an indecent act by forcibly kissing a 20-year-old female soldier without her consent. However, it ruled that the crime did not involve moral turpitude, thus paving the way for Ramon to remain an MK and return to the cabinet. Ramon is currently serving 120 hours of community service and has not announced future plans.
