A foreign worker from Belarus has claimed that Lior Katsav, brother of suspended President Moshe Katsav, sexually molested her, Channel 2 reported on Monday evening. The woman, who was arrested by immigration police two weeks ago, claimed during her interrogation that that Katsav had assaulted her some two years ago while she was working at an inn in the South of the country. Police refused to confirm that the interrogation had taken place. Katsav responded to the report by calling it "empty foolishness" and declaring that he was being falsely accused.
