Netanyahu expenses probe turns into criminal investigation

The probe into the expenses at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s residences has turned into a criminal investigation, the state attorney has recently decided. As a result of the decision, the prime minister’s wife, Sara, and Ezra Saidoff, the deputy director general of his office, will be questioned under caution. 

Since Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein decided to probe the Netanyahus expenses, meetings have been held between Weinstein, State Attorney Shai Nitzan and other officials from the State Attorney’s Office, Justice Ministry officials, and police commander Ephraim Bracha. 

In one of these meetings, results of the probe demonstrated that the expenses issue was more serious than what was initially believed.
