INDICTED: Sara Netanyahu Charged with Fraud

12

Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, was indicted this morning for in the so-called “residence affair.” Ynet reports that Sara is suspected of ordering private meals worth some NIS 350,000 (roughly $96,600) from high-end restaurants with the state footing the bill, although a cook had been hired to prepare the meals at the residence. She was charged with fraudulently obtaining benefits under aggravated circumstances, fraud and breach of trust.

According to the indictment, from the beginning of September 2010 at the latest and until March 2013, Sara Netanyahu acted in conjunction with former deputy director-general of the Prime Minister’s Office Ezra Saidoff to create a false impression according to which no cook was employed at the prime minister’s official residence in Yerushalayim.

The pair supposedly sought to obtain state financing both for employing the cooks working at the residence and for ordering ready-made meals and chefs to cook at the residence. Funding for hundreds of meals from chefs and restaurants was thus allegedly obtained, costing the public NIS 359,000.

  1. Seriously? She’s the prime ministers wife. Regardless if he’s a good public servant or bad, he’s been serving there for more then a decade. And over 3 years his wife spends not even 100k as a ‘fringe benefit’.

    Here husband is navigating enemy’s from all around, a world that wants to totally destroy the country and interaly they’re so busy with this nonsense.

    Not that he or his family should be above the law, but come on. This is such BS.

    Maybe us Yidden never learned the meaning of Sinas Chinam. I can’t even fathom how they can do such a thing. But I guess if we look at history we see that it unfortunately many times Yidden v. Yidden.

    The truth is now we frum people should make a Hadgana/ a protest and go crazy like we do for the draft laws and other reasons. Because this is mamash internal hatred and if we protest this we will probably have a much better chance at succeeding in other areas as well.

    3 weeks are approaching and let us all hope and pray that this year it turns into joy with the coming of Mashiach.

    Love to all.

  2. Israel is in a constant state of danger from all her enemies that surround her. The Prime Minister needs to be at his best. Trying to indict or disrupt the leadership of the Prime Minister is absolutely reckless! Israel is not like America which has no enemies at its borders threatening to annihilate them. This is not like democrats versus republicans game show/reality tv entertainment with no one ever seriously getting in trouble. The judges and prosecutors in Israel have become so corrupt they don’t even realize, with a disruption at the top, they are putting their very own lives in danger. I seriously don’t understand why anyone would make an aliyah to there. What a sick demented country.

  3. HOW MUCH MONEY DID THEY SPEND TO MAKE THIS UP?
    Meanwhile, real criminals roam the street because of pressure from the EU!!!

    What a waste of TAX payers money!!!
