Former attorney-general Michael Ben Yair slammed the ruling of Sara Netanyahu, writing on Facebook on Wednesday that the prime minister's wife got away too easy.
Pointing out that falsely claimed expenses to the tune of NIS 350,000 shrank to NIS 175,000 and that six cases against the wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “with no reasons given” became one, Ben-Yair argues a series of faults in the manner in which this the case was handled.
Netanyahu, he points out, will only return NIS 55,000 to the State of Israel. Likewise, the current attorney-general held a hearing for Netanyahu despite the fact she is not a public servant.
“Everything was done to reach a compromise… to please Sara Netanyahu, to avoid having a legal process and to leave her with next to no punishment,” he wrote.
It is not clear at this point if Netanyahu, who often speaks of her work as a psychologist, will be able to continue in that role as she will have a criminal record.
