According to a draft of the indictment, Sara Netanyahu told the staff at the PM’s Residence to order meals eaten at the residence worth a total of 360,000 shekels ($99,000) from gourmet restaurants between 2010 and 2013.

Sara Netanyahu, along with Ezra Saidoff, a former deputy director general of the Prime Minister’s Office, have been indicted on fraud and breach of trust according to an official statement.

Investigators in the case claim, she knew she was breaking rules prohibiting the residence from ordering meals from outside during periods when the residence had a cook on its staff and concealed these facts.

Ezra Saidoff allegedly conspired to avoid the regulations and create a false impression that there was no cook at the residence in Jerusalem.

For several months, Netanyahu’s attorneys have been working to reach an agreement that would see no criminal accusation registered but would involve the return of the funds.

The State Attorney’s Office declined the proposal, claiming that returning funds supposedly gained illegally is not sufficient punishment for someone suspected of systematically defrauding the state.
