Katsav re-schedules press conference for Thursday

After two years of silence following a now-infamous press conference asserting his innocence, former president Moshe Katsav delayed Tuesday evening a press conference scheduled for Wednesday to protest his innocence. Katsav's attorney, Zion Amir, said that the press conference was delayed for technical reasons, but would not elaborate. Katsav is said to be writing most of his speech himself, and is expected to direct his harshest criticism at the Justice Ministry and Attorney-General Menahem Mazuz. The press conference, which has been re-scheduled for Thursday, will be held in Katsav's hometown of Kiryat Malahi.
