The state attorney's office filed on Monday a request to the High Court of Justice to postpone by 48 hours its response to five appeals calling for the annulment of the plea bargain with former president Moshe Katsav. The request reiterates the state attorney's office's commitment that it would delay filing the suit against Katsav until the High Court of Justice deliberations commenced, i.e. Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. Later Monday, the High Court of Justice is expected to decide whether or not to accept the request. A panel of three judges will deliberate the five appeals.
