Sarah Netanyahu, wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, submitted to the court her response to the law-suit submitted against her by former Prime Minister residency cleaner Shira Raban.

Submitted by her attorney on Thursday, Miss Netanyahu described the law-suit as “far-fetched and ugly” and claimed the court has no authority over her in this matter as she was not the direct employer of Miss Raban.

In October Miss Raban testified that Miss Netanyahu attempted to strike her, bullied her and other house-staff workers, and demanded she and other workers wash hands repeatedly and stand at a distance from Miss Netanyahu and the other Netanyahu family members, Channel 10 reported.

Prime Minister Netanyahu rejected these claims and claimed that they are politically motivated and false.
