Katsav ordered to wear prison uniform when seeing visitors

Former president Moshe Katsav, serving seven years at Ma'asiyahu Prison in Ramle for a rape conviction, will be forced to wear an orange prisoners jumpsuit when receiving visitors, prison authorities informed him on Sunday.
Katsav has refused to wear the prison uniform, and until now was allowed to receive visitors while wearing an orange Israel Prisons Service jacket over his regular clothing.
The Israel Prisons Service emphasized that allowing Katsav to wear only the jacket had been a temporary compromise.
Incarcerated since early December, Katsav received no visitors until the end of January until the compromise was reached because of his refusal to wear the orange jumpsuit.
