Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, was questioned under advisement for five hours on Thursday on suspicions of using public funds to pay for private expenses.

Mrs. Netanyahu cooperated with the investigators and denied the suspicions against her.

She arrived at the offices of the police’s Lahav 433 unit with documents and cheque stubs to support her claims.

At this stage, investigators plan on processing the documents and other investigative material and comparing Mrs. Netanyahu’s answers to those given by PMO deputy director general Ezra Seidoff, who was questioned at an earlier date and claimed that all of the expenses were made in accordance with the law, and that every expense listed was approved by a special committee.
