Shaked denies plan to get Katsav out of jail

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked does not plan to intervene in the decision whether to give former president Moshe Katsav, who is in prison on rape and other sex offense charges, parole or a pardon, she said Monday.

Shaked firmly denied a Channel 10 report from the weekend stating that she and President Reuven Rivlin plan to pardon Katsav if the parole board, before which he is scheduled to appear this month, does not decide to release him.
