The wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sara Netanyahu, is likely to face indictment, Channel Two News reported Friday evening.

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will seek to indict Mrs. Netanyahu regarding controversies at the Prime Minister's official residency. Mrs. Netanyahu is alleged to have concealed the fact that the residency employs a cook who was on call simultaneously while Netanyahu ordered in expensive takeaway, costing taxpayers massive sums.

As the residency already employs a cook, if this is true it would mean Mrs. Netanyahu knowingly lied. A final decision has still not been made. This event allegedly occurred between the dates of September 2010 and March 2013. The net worth of food order during this time was 359,000 shekels, paid for by the State of Israel.
