After 14 months of questioning and investigations into Sara Netanyahu concerning the Prime Minister's Residence Affair, the prime minister's wife is going to be charged. It was announced this evening that Israel's Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit plans to file the indictment after the Israel Police recommended doing so on a number of occasions over the past year.

This evening (Monday), reports surfaced that Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will announce the filing of an indictment against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahuís wife, Sara Netanyahu.

Sara Netanyahu is suspected of four different criminal offenses believed to have cost the state hundreds of thousands of shekels. The first offense was the private hiring of an electrician who did not win the bid while transferring the expense to the state. The second offense involved the employment of a worker at the Prime Minister's Residence who while taking care of Mrs. Netanyahu's late father, had her rent financed by the state. The third was the purchase of garden furniture for the prime minister's official residence that had been transferred to their private residence in Caesarea. Lastly, the fourth offense involved the inflation of meal expenses at the prime ministerís home.

Already over a year ago, the Israel Police recommended that Sara be brought up on charges, a call Israelís State Attorney and other officials recently seconded. Last week, Sara was summoned to the Lahav 433 Fraud Investigation Unit offices for questioning at the request of Israelís attorney general for apparently financing meals that the Netanyahu couple had at the official residence but charged the Prime Ministerís Officer afterwards.

In May 2016, the Israel Police recommended that Sara be tried in the Prime Ministerís Residence Affair after the investigationís completion was announced and its findings transferred to the State Attorney's Office. Seven months later, Sara was questioned by police for 12 hours on a variety of issues relating to expenditures at the Prime Minister's residence.
