The Israel Police on Sunday stated that evidence in their possession justifies charging Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, with fraud and misuse of public funds.
For more than a year, police have been investigating claims that Sara Netanyahu used taxpayers’ money for personal matters.
Among the accusations are that the prime minister’s wife employed a live-in assistant for her late father and ordered exorbitantly-priced catering for Israeli friends, all at the public’s expense.
Last Thursday, Sara Netanyahu was questioned by police for nearly 12 hours. The result of that session was that police feel confident that the accusations are true.
Whether or not this will result in the prime minister’s wife being put on trial remains to be seen.
In the meantime, the liberal Israeli mainstream media, which has no love for the Netanyahu family, is having a field day with the story.
