AG Mazuz decides

Attorney General Menachem Mazuz decided Tuesday that President Moshe Katsav should face charges for alleged rape as well as sexual harassment, obstruction of justice, fraud and breach of trust. The sexual assault charges relate to the claims of four women who worked for Katsav during his terms as president or before that as a cabinet minister.
As supportive of the presumption of innocence principle as ever, we'll not deal with any predictions.

But that was surely a wild exaggeration!
