Report: Peres Says Katzav Statue Should Reflect Case

President Shimon Peres believes the statue of former president Moshe Katzav should be removed from the statue garden at the President's Residence or carry a label saying that Katzav was convicted of sex crimes, according to a Monday-morning report by the Yediot Acharonot daily.

Peres was cited as saying, in a private conversation, "I am not being judgemental, but I can't go without the whole story being told."
