The Israeli police have opened a criminal investigation into the expenses of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife at their homes in Jerusalem and Caesarea.

Israel’s Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein made the decision to hold the investigation after a preliminary study he made of a review by State Comptroller Joseph Shapira.

No worry for Netanyahu, though. At this stage, there is no suspicion on the Prime Minister’s wife Sara Netanyahu. She will likely be called upon to give evidence to the police, however.

The main suspect in the probe is the former deputy director general  in the Prime Minister’s Office Ezra Seidoff. He was responsible for hiring staff,  making payments, and for the irregularities uncovered by the State Comptroller.

Also suspect is electrician Avi Fahima, who according to the State Comptroller’s report, carried out electricity work at the prime minister’s private home in Caesarea using public funds.
