The Jerusalem Post - - NEWS - • Jerusalem Post Staff

Na­tional Crime Unit La­hav 433 ques­tioned Sara Ne­tanyahu on Fri­day re­gard­ing her con­duct over a two-year pe­riod re­lat­ing to ad­viser Nir He­fetz, Chan­nel 2 re­ported.

Ne­tanyahu’s lawyer, Yossi Co­hen, said any charges in Case 4000 (Bezeq-Walla Af­fair) against the prime min­is­ter’s wife will prove to be false.

“As ex­pected, at the end of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, it will be­come clear that this is an­other bunch of false­hoods and sto­ries by state wit­ness Nir He­fetz, which con­tain noth­ing. When the other files crum­ble, in­vent new fic­tions. How long will the per­se­cu­tion of the Ne­tanyahu fam­ily con­tinue?”

Ne­tanyahu is sus­pected of de­fraud­ing the State Comptroller Of­fice for two years by pre­sent­ing the of­fice with forged in­voices con­cern­ing a do­na­tion she was meant to give an NGO as a sub­sti­tute to pay­ing the wages of for­mer ad­viser Nir He­fetz.

He­fetz, who served as a top ad­viser to Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu, agreed to be­come a state wit­ness in March.

Be­tween 2014 and 2015 the Ne­tanyahu fam­ily was in­formed he must be paid for his work, yet it is un­clear un­der which con­di­tions he was em­ployed.
