Katzav Attorney: No Request for an Additional Hearing

Avigdor Feldman, an attorney for former president Moshe Katzav, told a gathering at Bar-Ilan University, Monday, that no request will be filed for an additional hearing on Katzav's conviction for rape, sexual assault and obstruction of justice.

Katzav, who started serving a seven-year sentence, this month, maintains he is innocent and has claimed irregularities in his trial.
