Ya'alon: Katzav Decision Sends Two Messages


Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon said, Thursday, that the Supreme Court's rejection of former president Moshe Katzav's conviction and sentence on sexual assault charges "closes a sad and difficult chapter in the history of Israel, but It emphasizes, once again, the message that a woman's body is her property, and nobody should think otherwise."

The former chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces said the decision also sends the message that nobody is above the law.
