Israel Pm's Wife Goes On Trial In Delivery Meals Case

In 2016, the court has recognized Sara Netanyahu is guilty of the humiliation of one of the employees, whereby it was forced to pay 42 thousand dollars compensation.

In 2016, a labor court in Jerusalem found her guilty of abusing an employee at the official residence and ordered her to pay $42,000 in damages, while in 2018, the Netanyahus won a libel suit against an Israeli reporter, Igal Sarna, who claimed Sara had once thrown her husband Benjamin out of a auto onto the side of the road during an argument.

But the various corruption allegations have so far not damaged the prime minister's core base of supporters or his centrality to the government's extreme-right coalition, thereby, for now, cementing his rule.

Sara Netanyahu, wife of Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, has risen before a court Sunday, October 7, on charges of abuse.

Mrs Netanyahu's lawyers contend that the indictment does not hold up because the regulations for ordering meals were legally invalid and a household employee had requisitioned the food despite Mrs Netanyahu's protestations.

This was as ugly a game as you'll see a team play in the postseason. "We saw it in Game 1, and we saw it throughout the season". "Obviously, we're all in with this, so you ever know what can happen in Game 3, but it should be Nate 3, Rick 4", Cora said.

She was also charged with fraud and breach of trust and of aggravated fraudulent receipt of goods.

Avi Diskin, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said that the corruption cases could in fact ultimately help Mr Netanyahu by "strengthening re-affiliations" with him.

The trial, which could run for months, is to open in the Jerusalem magistrates court at 1:30 P.M., overseen by a panel of three judges due to the "public sensitivity" of the case.

But the case has again turned the spotlight on the Netanyahu family and past allegations of misbehaviour.

But there are potentially more serious allegations facing Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu announced the meeting, which will be the fourth between the two leaders this year, at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting. The police have recommended that Mr Netanyahu be indicted, though Israel's Attorney General has not yet decided how he will proceed. On Friday, police quizzed him for a 12th time as a suspect in various cases.
