Gila Katsav: Certain of my husband’s innocence
President’s wife comments for first time regarding affairs associated with her husband. At art gallery opening in Jerusalem she says: ‘I am certain that his full innocence will come out’
President Moshe Katsav's wife Gila commented Monday about the sexual harassment affair in which her husband is allegedly involved in.


“I have no doubt his innocence will come out” she said at a photography exhibition opening of photographer Nir Alon presented at the Jerusalem Centre for the Performing Arts. Katsav passed by a group of journalists, did not answer their questions initially but after a few petitions, she expressed support of her husband.


The photographs exhibited are a united work effort by and the Jerusalem shelter for girls in distress.


Two weeks ago, the president was interrogated twice under warning at his office, on the second floor of the President’s Residency in Jerusalem.


He was asked profound questions about the nature of complainant A, who claimed that the president had raped her.


Katsav denied all her claims, reminding that his wife and resident employees are constantly nearby.


The president left on Monday with his family to vacation on the Lake Kinneret to get some respite from the dramas accompanying him since

he himself went to Attorney General Menachem Mazuz claiming that he was being blackmailed by A. He is expected to be interrogated this week for a third time.


Prior to the president’s interrogation, police announced that it had taken computers and documentation from his residence in order to see whether he corresponded with the complainer. According to the President’s residency: “Contrary to publications, the president does not own a personal computer and does not correspond with anyone via e-mail.”
