Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was questioned on Wednesday by the police regarding suspected misuse of state funds at the couple’s residence in Jerusalem.

Police recommended to indict Mrs. Netanyahu in this case more than a year ago, and recently the State Attorney recommended it as well. Police also said then it had sufficient evidence to merit an indictment of Ezra Saidoff, the deputy director of the Prime Minister’s office.

In December, Mrs. Netanyahu was questioned by police for 12 hours on a variety of issues relating to expenditure at the Prime Minister’s residence.
