Peres: Crime of Yigal Amir will not be forgotten

Published: 02.12.13, 13:43 / Israel News

President Shimon Peres was asked during a visit to Ayalon Prison in Ramla if he would grant amnesty to Yigal Amir, murderer of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. He replied: “God forbid. His crime will not be forgotten as long as he lives. He must rot in prison.”


The president also spoke about the request to pardon former president Moshe Katzav, serving a seven year sentence for rape, and said, “I am aware of the seriousness of the offense, especially when it concerns sexual harassment, but only when the case is before me will I be able to consider it and give my opinion.” (Shiri Hadar)
