Female MKs slam reports of early release for Katsav

Female MKs from the opposition came out strongly Saturday night against reports that former president Moshe Katsav, who is in prison for rape and other sex-related offenses, could be released from prison later this month.

Katsav is due to appear before a parole board at the end of the month. According to a report from Channel 10, if the former president is not granted parole, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked plans to recommend that President Reuven Rivlin commute his sentence and grant him an early release. Rivlin supports the plan, the report stated.
