Police investigators raid president's home

Investigators confiscate documents, computers from President’s Residence in Jerusalem as part of investigation into apparent extortion case. Katsav expected to be interviewed by police Wednesday

The episode involving President Moshe Katsav and the clerk is approaching the moment of truth, as police investigators entered the bureau of the president with questions over the nature of his personal relations.


On Wednesday Katsav is expected to be questioned by police in the extortion episode which he himself informed the attorney general of.


It has now become clear that on Monday, an 'escalation' took place in the complex case.


The International Investigation Unit of the National Police Squad sent investigators to the president's home in Jerusalem and took away documents and computers, as part of an ongoing investigation.


Police officials said in response that they "could not comment on the investigation."


The investigation team will likely arrive at the President's Residence and hear his version of events.

In Ramle, A, the female employee accusing the president, was questioned in a police station.
