Witness Harassment Charges in Katzav Case
YNet – Police suspect that associates of former President Moshe Katsav – and possibly Katsav himself – hired the services of private investigators, who allegedly harassed witnesses and one complainant involved in his trial. The affair had been placed under a gag order.
It is suspected that two private investigators were hired after the former president was convicted and before his appeal was filed with the Supreme Court. Katsav, his brothers Lior and Yoram as well as his son Noam were questioned under warning for two hours on Sunday by the National Fraud Investigations Unit for witness harassment, tampering and invasion of privacy. Police are checking to what extent he was involved in the affair.
