13 Female MKs ask Peres not to pardon Katsav

MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) asked President Shimon Peres on Thursday not to pardon former president Moshe Katsav, who lost an appeal of his rape conviction last week.
Over a dozen female MKs from six different parties signed Hotovely's letter to the president, titled: "Strong and intense opposition to pardoning former president Moshe Katsav."
The letter explains that in the days following Katsav's appeal, in which his seven-year prison sentence was upheld, "Katsav is running a media campaign that seems to be an attempt at creating a public atmosphere that would lead to a pardon, and exempt him from being punished."
