Katsav crony denies asking Rivlin for pardon

Businessman David Appel, a close friend of convicted rapist and former president Moshe Katsav, denies he asked President Reuven Rivlin over the weekend to pardon Katsav, as was reported by Channel 10 on Saturday night.

Katsav entered Ramle’s Ma’asiyahu Prison in December 2011, after being sentenced to seven years for rape and other sexual assault offenses. In a unanimous vote Thursday, the Israel Prisons Service parole board rejected Katsav’s appeal for early parole.
