Court sends Katsav back to parole board for another round in fight for early release

In another major surprise in the endless saga, Moshe Katsav will get an additional shot at an early release as the Lod District Court on Tuesday ordered the parole board to review the former president’s request again.

The order, which gave new life to his attempt to get out of jail after serving two-thirds of a seven-year sentence for rape, comes in light of a new prisoner rehabilitation committee opinion to be submitted regarding his condition.

However, the court emphasized that its decision was based solely on wanting the parole board to have decided based on all of the relevant and most-updated information and that the board was free to accept or reject his request again as it sees fit.
