Former President Katsav Granted Early Release After Five Years In Prison


Former Israeli president Moshe Katsav, who was convicted of indecent behavior, will soon become a free man after the parole board accepted his early release request today, Ynet reports.

Katsav has already served five years, more than two thirds of his seven-year sentence. In his third request for early release, the 72-year-old felon asked for forgiveness from anyone who was hurt by him.

“After board members examined all of the arguments made before them, all of the documents submitted to them and all of the meetings and decision concerning the prisoner, the conclusion was reached that it is time to order the prisoner’s release,” the parole board said in a statement.
