The investigation of charges of sexual harassment filed against President Moshe Katsav was adjourned Wednesday afternoon until the following morning. Katsav was also questioned over claims that he illegally granted pardons to prisoners. Earlier Wednesday, it was revealed that yet another claim of sexual harassment was filed over the past few days against Katsav. The alleged harassment, according to the complaint, took place while Katsav served as a minister in the government several years ago.

  • The people want a president, by Greer Fay Cashman The woman who filed the complaint with police claims that then minister Katsav tried on a number of occasions to touch her in intimate areas of her body. Police were checking whether or not a statute of limitations applied to the case. Katsav was questioned by police for seven hours for the third time in his office at Beit Hanassi regarding allegations made by former employee 'A', who was questioned by police on Tuesday for nearly 10 hours. Police have been investigating Katsav's assertions that 'A' was attempting to blackmail him and his denials of her claims that the president had sexual contact with her while she worked at Beit Hanassi.
