The plea bargain signed with former president Moshe Katzav doesn't reflect the offences that he is suspected of, the president of the Supreme Court, Dorit Beinisch said Tuesday. "It is impossible that the evidence is inconclusive if an indictment was already drafted," she said during a High Court of Justice deliberation of an appeal calling for the annulment of the deal with the former president. If the draft of the indictment included accusations of two counts of rape then how could the evidence be deemed indecisive, she asked.
