Prosecution opposes important evidence in Katsav case

It took the former president too long to realize that he should hire Yoram Sheftel for his defense. The power attorney took over his case only after Katsav lost his Supreme Court appeal and went to jail. Such a case would ordinarily appear to be lost, but Sheftel, as usual, works judicial miracles.

So he produced a videotape showing Katsav attending a public meeting many years ago, just at the time Aleph claimed he was busy raping her.

So far, the Attorney General opposes a re-trial based on this new evidence.
