Moshe Katsav will be indicted on several charges.
"The decision was made after the attorney general and state prosecutor reached the conclusion that the complainants' testimony was reliable and that there is sufficient evidence for an indictment," read the statement.
The local media reported that the official indictment would be filed within days.
The case against Katsav was opened in 2006 when the then president alleged that a former female employee was trying to blackmail him.
After an investigation was launched, however, the female employee accused Katsav of raping her while she was his secretary in the late 1990s. Katsav was forced to leave office following the scandal.
