Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will be questioned under caution this Thursday, over her involvement in what has become known as the prime minister’s residences scandal, Globes revealed Monday.

This legal step has been coordinated between her lawyer, Jacob Weinroth, and police investigators, following attorney general Yehuda Weinstein’s approval.

Hebrew daily “Yediot Ahronot” reported that Weinstein received the request to question her a month ago. By that time, lawyer Weinroth met with Weinstein in an attempt to prevent an official investigation against Mrs. Netanyahu, but was apparently unsuccessful.

According to Globes, the interrogation of Mrs. Netanyahu, who denies all allegations, marks the first time the wife of a serving prime minister will be questioned under caution by police.

Netanyahu, who is suspected of dishonest dealings, denies the accusations against her.

According to the allegations, the Netanyahus obtained state funding for services rendered at their private home in Caesarea, under the guise the work related to their official residence in Jerusalem.

In one purported instance, garden furniture purchased for the prime minister’s residence was instead used to decorate the Netanyahus’ private Caesarea home.

Another charge involves alleged public fund misconduct in the employment of an electrician for the Caesarea home on weekends and holidays.
