Israel's attorney general is considering indicting the wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sara, on suspicion of using state funds for personal dining and catering services amounting to some $100,000, the Justice Ministry said Friday.It added that the attorney general was considering prosecuting Sara Netanyahu for offenses that include fraudulently procuring items, fraud and breach of trust.A statement from Sara Netanyahu's lawyers, posted on the premier's Facebook page, said six other affairs of alleged corruption involving her had been investigated by Mandelblit but did not lead to charges.The lawyers also claimed that it was Meni Naftali, Netanyahu's former housekeeper, who had ordered the food – not Sara Netanyahu.Netanyahu is himself under investigation on suspicions of corruption, and last month his former chief of staff signed a deal to turn state's witness in probes involving the premier.
