One of the women who filed complaints against the Israeli President
Israeli President Moshe Katsav has been under criminal investigation since July, when a senior female aide complained she was sexually harassed while working for him. Police now say they have evidence against Katsov and that they will file formal charges.
Ten women have filed complaints against the president, but the investigation file only refers to five of them, due to statutes of limitation which apply to the offenses Katsav is suspected of.
According to this report:
… “there is alleged evidential basis that in a number of affairs, involving several women – including A. – who worked under Katsav, the president committed sex offenses, including rape, forceful indecent assault, indecent assault without consent and sexual harassment offenses.
“According to the police, there is alleged evidential basis that the president committed offenses of bribery and breach of trust as part of the different affairs. There is also alleged evidential basis that the president committed illegal weire-tapping.”
It was also reported that the police have found “alleged evidence that the president committed offenses of harassing a witness and obstruction of justice, but the investigation on this issue has yet to be completed.”
