Wife of Israeli Prime Minister, Sara Netanyahu on Trial for Aggravated Fraud, Breach of Trust [video] ~ October 10, 2018

It seems the El-lites of Israel have been living high off the hog on the taxpayers’ expense account, buying lavish accoutrements like catered personal meals when they had a cook to boot. It seems lady Sara has a penchant for food, and it’s obvious.

Is the tide turning? Someone took exception to the long suspected abuse of state funds and filed a law suit. The special people running the world aren’t as special as they think and will be treated according to the People’s laws of decency, honour, and respect. They get the cameras and all. Public accountability, and it’s about time.

It appears to be good for ratings, however, as Bibi of course stuck up for his wife.

Accusations he has made against the Israeli media of orchestrating a politically motivated witch-hunt against him and his wife appear to have struck a chord with his right-wing voter base, which has rallied in support of the 68-year-old leader.

The outcome of the investigation and trial will be interesting to hear, particularly if they’re using the Law of the Sea as we are in America; probably a slap on the wrist when they should throw her in the brig on bread and water.

They might need earplugs, though. Apparently, like HRC, Mrs. Netanyahu has a temper and takes it out on her aide—but she was probably hungry at the time. See the video below.  ~ BP


Netanyahu’s wife indicted on fraud charges

The wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was indicted Thursday on fraud charges, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.

Prosecutors allege that Sara Netanyahu committed systemic fraud by directing staff at the prime minister’s residence to order meals totaling 360,000 shekels, or roughly $99,000, from gourmet restaurants between 2010 and 2013.

Rules block the residence from ordering meals from off the premises when a cook is employed, according to Haaretz.

Sara Netanyahu is charged with aggravated fraudulent receiving of an item or items, fraud and breach of trust. Ezra Saidoff, former deputy director general of the prime minister’s office, faces the same charges.

Investigators alleged that Sara Netanyahu moved to hide the employment of the cook at the residence, and that she knew ordering the meals violated the rules.

Haaretz first reported last year that Sara Netanyahu would face fraud charges.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to dismiss the investigation last year.

“They’re dealing with the most important things in the world,” he said at the time. “The procedure for replacing a light bulb, trays of food, the cup of tea that was served to her father, a righteous man, on his deathbed.”

Wife of Israeli prime minister goes on trial for fraud

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, appeared in court on Sunday for the first hearing in the fraud trial against her, in which she is alleged to have misused state funds in ordering catered meals.

According to the indictment, Sara Netanyahu, along with a government employee, fraudulently obtained from the state more than $100,000 for hundreds of meals supplied by restaurants, bypassing regulations that prohibit the practice if a cook is employed at home.

Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing.

She was charged in June with fraud and breach of trust and of aggravated fraudulent receipt of goods. If convicted, Sara Netanyahu could face up to five years in prison.

Looking tense, Netanyahu made no comment to reporters who had packed the tiny courtroom. She sat on a bench behind her lawyers.

“Can we ask them to move the cameras away?”, she asked the lawyer for the other defendant, who replied: “You’re used to it.”

“Not like this,” Netanyahu answered. She shook her head as the prosecutor described the gravity of her case.

The session, however, dealt mainly with procedural matters. The judge set a meeting with the prosecutors and the defendants’ lawyers for Nov. 13 in which he said he hoped all sides could narrow their differences “or even resolve the case”.

But a settlement at this stage appears remote because the prosecutors would likely demand Netanyahu plead guilty, something her lawyer has ruled out. She was not asked at the hearing to enter a plea.

Netanyahu’s lawyers contend the indictment does not hold up because the regulations for ordering meals were legally invalid and a household employee had requisitioned the food despite Netanyahu’s protestations.

The prime minister, who himself is embroiled in corruption investigations, has called the allegations against his wife absurd and unfounded.

Sara Netanyahu, 59, has inspired a multitude of headlines in the past over what family spokesmen call an undeserved reputation for imperiousness.

In 2017 the Netanyahus won a libel suit against an Israeli journalist who said Sara once kicked her husband out of their car during an argument. In 2016, a Jerusalem labor court ruled that she had insulted and raged at household staff in the prime minister’s official residence.

So far, Sara’s present legal woes have not politically damaged her husband, now in his fourth term as Israel’s leader and riding high in opinion polls despite the allegations against him.
