Israel's Attorney General on Thursday told Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, that she will be indicted on charges relating to misuse of public funds.

Mrs. Netanyahu may be indicted as early as Friday, according to Channel 2 News reporter Guy Peleg, who first broke the story. She is suspected of spending public money for personal needs in four different cases known collectively as the Prime Minister's Residence Affair.

The Prime Minister has reportedly told his confidants that his wife would never agree to sign a plea deal with the state prosecution, because she would never admit to a crime she did not commit.

In December 2016, Sara Netanyahu was questioned by police for 12 hours on the various allegations against her.
