Mazuz: Implications of Katsav's move probably clear to him

Attorney General Menahem Mazuz indicated on Tuesday that he would consider indicting former president Moshe Katsav for the most serious offences he was accused of, after the latter announced Tuesday that he was calling off the plea bargain with the state prosecution. In statement issue in the afternoon, Mazuz said the decision reached by Moshe Katsav's attorneys was difficult to understand and added that "the implications of this move are probably clear to Moshe Katsav." "Before the signing of the plea bargain, our clear tendency was to indict Katsav for the most serious offences he was suspected of, despite the difficulties this would entail. Now that the plea bargain has been called off, the necessary decision will soon be made."
