"It is a sad day for all of us," Prof. Amnon Rubinstein, president of the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya said on Wednesday in response to Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz's announced intention to file an indictment against President Moshe Katsav for rape and other charges. "I am comforted by only two things," Rubinstein told The Jerusalem Post, "first, Israel, unlike many veteran democracies doesn't sweep anything under the rug, and second, in Israel there is equality before the law." Asked what he believed should take place now, Rubinstein said legally, Katsav should resign only if an indictment is filed. "It is true," he noted, "that the presumption of innocence applies to public servants as well but in a limited way. There is an internal contradiction between being president of a state and being prosecuted by that state."
