According to the indictment filed by prosecutors in the Jerusalem District Court, Sara Netanyahu and the former deputy director of the prime minister's office, Ezra Saidoff, were charged with ordering meals to the residence worth a total of $99,000 between 2010 and 2013.
Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was on Thursday officially indicted on charges of aggravated fraud and breach of trust, according to the Justice Ministry.
Suspicions included the misuse of almost $100,000 in official funds for meals supplied by gourmet restaurants to the prime minister's residence in Jerusalem, the ministry said in statement. According to a statement by Israel's Justice Ministry, Sara Netanyahu has been charged with another government employee, for "fraudulently" spending $100,000 for meals supplied by restaurants.
Sara Netanyahu has been charged with using almost $100,000 of state money to cover unauthorized spending on high-end meals between September 2010 and March 2013.

Although the indictment against Sara Netanyahu did not directly affect the prime minister, it ended a period of political victories that had bolstered the Israeli leader and distracted attention from his legal woes.
The charges are the culmination of years of investigation into Sara Netanyahu's official expenses.
