Katsav lawyers claim evidence obtained illegally

President Moshe Katsav's attorneys plan to claim that a portion of the evidence in the case against the president for alleged sexual crimes was obtained illegally, it was reported on Thursday. According to the attorneys, who are preparing for the upcoming hearing on the Katsav's case, the president was never asked whether he was willing to forfeit his immunity, and it was therefore illegal to conduct searches in his office and confiscate documents and computers. Katsav's hearing is scheduled for May 2.
