Mother of slain teen slams Peres for reducing his killers' sentence Staff
A day after President Shimon Peres agreed to cut short the life sentence of the five Israeli Arabs convicted of murdering teenager Danny Katz in the 1980s, Katz's mother blasted the president on Wednesday and bemoaned the lack of importance awarded to life sentences in the state of Israel. "The second Peres becomes president, he rushes to release murderers - five murderers, savages, who killed an innocent boy outside his home. We're getting calls from all over the country. They're all saying, 'Better [former president Moshe] Katsav than someone who frees murderers,'" Mira Katz told Army Radio.
