For first time in Israel, attorney general forced to decide whether to indict president. Team of attorneys already examining evidence ahead of forming indictment – should it be submitted. In spite of calls that he suspend himself, Katsav plans to attend opening of Knesset's winter session Monday
Following the submission of President Moshe Katsav's complete investigation file to the State Prosecutor's Office and the police's recommendation that he be charged with rape, sex offenses and other offenses, sources in the Justice Ministry said Sunday evening that a decision on the case is expected to be made within a month.
The State Prosecutor's Office has already began the race against the clock to review all the material submitted by the police, in order to convert it into offenses and form the indictment, should Attorney General Menchem Mazuz decide to eventually submit it.
