Peres on a Pardon for Katsav

Sir, - While on a state visit to Vietnam, Pres. Shimon Peres was queried by interviewers of an other paper about granting a pardon to former Pres. Moshe Katsav. Although no request for a pardon has yet been made, Peres responded by saying that he "tends to view harshly crimes committed against women."

Although I take no issue with the above response, I and many others felt the appalling lack of a clearly stated public declaration of abhorrence concerning his awful task of having to sign pardons for the hundreds of blood drenched terrorists released in the Schalit exchange.
