The wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was charged with fraud and breach of trust Thursday over the alleged misuse of state funds at the couple’s official residence.

 

In a case known as the “Meals Ordering Affair,” prosecutors say Sara Netanyahu used state money to pay for $100,000 worth of meals at the prime minister’s residence, according to an indictment filed in Jerusalem’s magistrate’s court on Thursday.

Sara Netanyahu also illegally paid approximately $10,000 for private chefs, prosecutors said.
The charges carry a maximum sentence of 8 years in prison.
Her lawyers slammed the indictment, describing it as “false and hallucinatory”.
