President Moshe Katsav believes that Ma'ariv is mounting a vendetta against him. Katsav categorically denied on Wednesday that the item in Ma'ariv pertaining to his health contained any truth. He had not suffered any heart murmur, he said, and had gone to the hospital on Tuesday evening for a routine checkup that had been scheduled well in advance. In response to journalists' questions, Katsav said that he did not require any treatment and that he felt perfectly healthy, and was in even better shape now than he had been in his previous checkup. "The item in Ma'ariv is completely false," Katsav said. "They've done it yet again," he added.
