Mazuz’s office issued a statement on Tuesday saying that it had collected enough evidence to support an indictment against Katsav on charges of rape, harassment, abuse of power and obstruction of justice, among other crimes. 
 

The president enjoys immunity while in office and could be tried only after his resignation or end of term, which is later this year. His lawyers had indicated he would resign if indicted.
