The Chareidi housekeeper who made claims against Israel’s First Lady Sarah Netanyahu, gave testimony to the police today for more than eight hours. The claimant spoke about the goings-on in the Prime Minister’s residence to the police for the duration of the testimony, which took place behind closed doors.
The testimony was orchestrated by the housekeeper’s lawyers, who are of the opinion that among the testimony would be included evidence of illegal acts that transpired, which needed to be brought to the attention of the police.
Police release a statement: “At the end of the testimony and complaint, which the housekeeper requested to file, the housekeeper’s version of events will be passed on to the qaulified investigators, and a decision will be made regarding further development with the involvement of all of the attorneys.”
Last week Yediot Acharonot revealed that a Charedi woman aged 24 and a mother of three, known only as S.R. submitted a lawsuit against Sarah Netanyahu for the amount of 225,000 NIS. The lawsuit claims that the First lady cruelly abused and embarrassed the housekeeper, while she worked for Netanyahu during her short tenure
One of the major claims of the housekeeper is that Mrs. Netanyhau used violence against her.
Aides close to Netanyahu replied to the accusations this evening and said: “This is just the tip of the iceberg regarding the underhanded tactics being employed by the group surrounding Manny Naftali, Attorney Naomi Landau and their partners and press mongers. But the public is smart and realizes that these are simply false claims, whose sole function is to blacken the name of Sarah Netanyahu and harm the Prime Minister. There is no boundary to the attempted character assassination taking place here.”
