President Moshe Katsav returned to Beit Hanassi on Monday from his home in Kiryat Malachi and will remain there until his hearing with the Attorney General, or alternately if and when the Knesset decides to remove him from office. He will remain in Jerusalem throughout the week and as he has done in the past will go home for the weekends according to a senior source at Beit Hanassi. Katsav had no presidential duties scheduled for the immediate future said his spokesperson Hagit Cohen. In other words he was not scheduled to receive visitors from abroad or the credentials of new ambassadors, nor requests for pardons, which means that Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik will likewise have few presidential duties. Knesset director-general Avi Balashnikov was at Beit Hanassi on Sunday to speak to the President's senior aides and to assure them that working arrangements will continue as usual during the period that Itzik functions as acting president.
