The Jerusalem District Attorney met Monday with "A," the first young woman to accuse President Moshe Katsav of sexual misconduct, to prepare her for the upcoming trial, Israel Radio reported. "A"'s lawyer, Kinneret Barashi, said that there was no evidence to try "A" for attempting to blackmail the president. She also pointed out that the president himself had written to Attorney General Menahem Mazuz some two months ago, saying that "A" had never threatened that if Katsav didn't pay what she asked, she would claim he had sexually harassed her. Sources in the Justice Ministry said that trying "A" for attempted blackmail was under consideration, but it was possible the case would be closed as irrelevant to the public interest.
