JERUSALEM: An Israeli court Sunday convicted the wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of fraudulently using state funds for meals, under a plea bargain which saw her admit to lesser charges.
Sara Netanyahu was found guilty of exploiting the mistake of another person and ordered to pay a fine and compensation, in a deal approved by Jerusalem magistrates’ court justice Avital Chen.
Netanyahu was also fined $2,800 and ordered to reimburse the state a further almost $12500, the latter of which she will pay in nine installments, at her request.
