Israel ex-president guilty of rape

An Israeli court found Moshe Katsav, the country’s former president, guilty of rape and other sexual offenses in a conviction of unprecedented gravity for a former head of state.


"Katsav's testimony was riddled with lies," the three-judge panel said in its ruling. "When a woman says no, she means no." Katsav, president from 2000 to 2007, had denied the charges of rape, molestation or harassment lodged by three ex-aides. Al Jazeera
