A FORMER PRESIDENT CONVICTED OF RAPE

Former President Moshe Katsav was
convicted of raping an employee
when he was a Cabinet minister,
the most serious criminal charges
ever brought against a high-ranking
official in Israel and a case that
shocked the nation.
The conviction on two counts of rape
of a former employee means that
Mr. Katsav will face at least four years
in prison.

The Tel Aviv District Court also
convicted him on lesser counts of
indecent acts and sexual harassment
involving two other women that worked
for him. The court completely
rejected Mr. Katsav's denials.
The verdict caps a four-and-a-half
year saga that shocked the country.

It is the taste of a true working
Democracy, a Justice not only
for the rich and powerful.

In our country The Supreme Court
voted 7 in favor, 4 dissenting and
4 abstaining to acquit the accused
persons for responsibility
of the Visconde massacre.

Their acquittal does not necessarily
mean they did not commit the crime.
The court decision only emphasizes
that the prosecution failed to prove
beyond reasonable doubt they
were guilty of the crime.

So why they are convicted in the Lower
court if the Prosecution failed to prove
that they are guilty or they don't
had enough evidence to back up their
allegations?

It is the Saga of which every Filipino
is waiting for at least 20 years.
