Naor, Arbel and Joubran to hear Katsav’s appeal in August

Former president Moshe Katsav’s appeal will be heard starting August 8, the Courts Administration announced on Monday. The judges selected to hear Katsav’s appeal are Supreme Court Justices Miriam Naor, Edna Arbel and Salim Joubran.
The Tel Aviv District Court sentenced Katsav, in May, to seven years in prison, following a March conviction on charges of rape, sexual harassment and obstruction of justice.
Last week, Supreme Court Judge Yoram Danziger ruled that Katsav would remain free until the end of his appeal process, following a request for a stay of execution by Katsav’s lawyers.
