Abstract (Document Summary)

[Moshe Katsav] decided to ignore the parole board ruling and allow [Margalit Har-Shefi] out on August 10. In explaining his decision, he wrote that he was "convinced that Har-Shefi has paid her debt to society and been punished, and that she feels pain over the repulsive and terrible murder and condemns it with all her heart, and expressed sincere regret that she failed and erred in perceiving the situation."

Katsav was harshly criticized by many, especially in the Left, for deciding to release Har-Shefi. They argued that Har-Shefi had never expressed regret for failing to inform the authorities of [Yigal Amir]'s plan and charged that Katsav's decision was based on his own, personal, political considerations. Har-Shefi has maintained all along that she did not believe Amir was serious about killing [Yitzhak Rabin].
