    I would like to have heard the testimony. Especially the part about when the incident was reported. That is, how long after the incident did the reportee wait to file an incident report. The forensics report would have been a key issue in this incident. That should have shown that there was bruising. That would have shown resistance to attempted penetration. DNA evidence from the rape kit would have shown conclusively whether Katsav had relations with the victim (but not in itself whether the relations were forced). The amount of time between the incident and the time of the report might show that the incident had, in fact, been consensual and lead one to believe that it was remorse or disgust that drove the alleged victim to report the incident as 'rape'. Also, the cry of 'rape' might have been from a breach of contract between Katsav and the women based on promised promotions. However, that would mean that the 'acts' were really nothing more than prostitution since that is what being paid for sex really is anyway. It appears to me that Haaretz has done its usual job of convicting someone by innuendo and failing/refusing to present the facts. Nice job, Haaretz. Get a rope!
