Kinneret Barashi, the attorney representing the woman - known as "Aleph" - who has accused President Moshe Katsav of sex crimes, stormed out of Tuesday's Yom Kippur memorial ceremony at Mount Herzl in protest of the president's participation. Barashi, whose father was killed in the Yom Kippur war, left the ceremony when Katsav arrived. "I would have expected him not to come to the ceremony and humiliate me with his presence. I have been coming to this ceremony for 32 years, and when I was asked to rise when the president arrived… I couldn't do it." Barashi said.
