Katsav probed again

Moshe Katsav is to be interrogated again in his sexual misconduct case. Israeli Attorney-General Menachem Mazuz approved the move Monday in light of new information in the case against the suspended president. Katsav, who faces possible charges of rape and other sexual offenses, was given a three-month suspension by the Knesset House Committee. He has denied all wrongdoing, and vowed to step down from his position if indicted. A hearing that will help decide whether to indict him has been set for May.
