This has been the case since the beginning, and the lawyers were able to put a positive spin on every development, except the last one. When the spin met the reality of the evidence, it had to stand still. I read the Court's finding, and it seems very solid. The woman accusing Katsav of rape had evidence, which she was not even aware of, to support her claims. Once the Court was convinced that Katsav was lying through his teeth, it chose to believe the women. That's life. The spin doctors should have insisted that Katsav stick to the plea bargain. It was an excellent deal for him. Now he lost everything.
