Yossi Fuchs, the lawyer who submitted an appeal that President Moshe Katsav suspend himself, said Monday evening that it was "surprising that someone being investigated by the police in the Katsav affair is the one who signed his response to the High Court." Fuchs was referring to Katsav's legal advisor Yonah Sheindorf, who earlier handed the court the president's explanation of his refusal to do as Fuchs suggested. Fuchs also aimed to refute the president's claim that the High Court did not have the authority to rule on the petition.
