Katsav victim: I’m done fighting, though parole is wrong

While many have criticized the decision to release former president and convicted rapist Moshe Katsav from prison early, one of his victims says she won’t oppose the move.

“I have no interest in continuing to fight the decision, even if it’s the wrong one,” the woman known only as A., who was raped by Katsav, says according to Channel 2.

Another one of Katsav’s alleged victims, Odelia Carmon, who accused Katsav of rape, but for which he was never convicted, calls the decision “miserable.”

“The parole board made a decision that clarifies to the women of Israel that we are in Sodom and there is no end to the contempt for them,” she says, according to the channel.

The fact that the Katsav decision was made on the same day that a number of high profile sexual harassment and assault cases came up “shows the moral and ethical depths of the society we are living in,” she says.
