Sheftel Asks for New Katzav Extension


Yoram Sheftel, the recent addition to the defense team of former president Moshe Katzav, asked, Sunday, for additional time to request a new hearing on Katzav's conviction and seven-year sentence for rape, sexual assault and obstruction of justice.

In a document submitted to the Supreme Court, Sheftel said it was only this weekend that he finished his first study of the file. Sheftel asked that the deadline be extended to March 5th.
