President Moshe Katzav said Tuesday that he believed the police deserved additional funds to properly combat crime and violence. Nevertheless, the president emphasized, he would not question Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s decision not to allocate the funds. “Sharon is in charge and it would not be right for me to question his decisions,” Katsav told the senior police brass during a visit to the National Police Headquarters in Jerusalem. It was Katsav’s second visit to the police headquarters since becoming president in 2000.
