Netanyahu's wife goes on trial in delivery meals case

Sara Netanyahu's fraud and breach of trust trial begins in Jerusalem Netanyahu's wife goes on trial for fraud

Speaking to his Cabinet Sunday, Netanyahu said he had spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin and would soon travel to Moscow for face-to-face talks.

Investigators of "Lahav 433", a national anti-corruption police unit, arrived at the prime minister's residence in Jerusalem at 9 a.m. and interrogated him for about five hours.

Mrs Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing. In 2016, a court ruled she abused a housekeeper and awarded the man €36,000 in damages. There's no indication that the allegations against the prime minister or his wife are having an effect on voters, with Netanyahu gaining support in recent polls.

The Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu (R) and his wife Sara Netanyahu visit the the Choral Synagogue in Vilnius on August 26, 2018.

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.

Earlier, already in Israel thousands of people at the protest demanded to prosecute Prime Minister Netanyahu. She was charged in June.

Now we just moan indignantly about Hernandez and ponder what he might do in Game 4-when he will be the umpire behind home plate. Eovaldi was 3-3 with a 3.33 in 11 starts and one relief appearance for the Red Sox , who acquired him from Tampa Bay in July.


But the case has again turned the spotlight on the Netanyahu family and past allegations of misbehaviour.

The prosecution during the hearing on Sunday requested that an expanded panel of three judges preside over the case due to its public significance.

This is one of the multiple scandals facing the Netanyahu family with opponents and some media outlets portraying the Netanyahu administration as being out of touch with the average Israeli citizen.

Sara Netanyahu, 59, has inspired a multitude of headlines in the past over what family spokesmen call an undeserved reputation for imperiousness. The residence's former deputy director was also indicted in the case.

Police, meanwhile, interviewed Mr Netanyahu for the twelfth time last week as a suspect in his own corruption cases. Another ongoing inquiry involves the prime minister offering a different mogul to push forward government policies favourable to his telecom business in exchange for positive coverage in his news site.
