Katsav: Judicial system should have 'heard my testimony'

Former president Moshe Katsav on Thursday expressed resentment at the Supreme Court, which rejected his appeal over rape charges brought against him, telling relatives and close friends he was angry with the judicial system for not allowing him to testify.
According to one close friend, David Mot'ei, who visited the former president at his Kiryat Malachi home, Katsav said that he thought the Supreme Court should have "heard his arguments, but the [judicial] system was not listening."
Katsav told Mot'ei that despite a seven-year prison sentence, "nothing could break him."
According to Mot'ei, who spoke to the press outside of Katsav's house, the former president appeared strong, and that despite the ruling, Katsav was sure that he "knew the truth."
