As corruption cases against Netanyahu and his family proceed, the results of his wife’s polygraph test indicate she is telling the truth about key matters.

Last week, Sara Netanyahu elected to take a private polygraph test as part of an investigation related to improper use of public funds for expenses at the Prime Minister’s residence and for elder care for her ill father, in addition to charges related to catered dinners and housekeeping expenses.

Currently, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is determining whether to hand down an indictment on this matter, among other investigations related to the Netanyahus. The indictments concern the use of government money for private purposes.

The polygraph test was administered by the Tal Polygraph Institute, with the results published by Israel’s News1 site and broadcast by Channel 2.

According to a report by the Times of Israel, Netanyahu truthfully answered “yes” to the query, “Did you censure (residence caretaker) Menny Naftali for ordering too much food for the Prime Minister’s Residence?”

The polygraph test indicates she also answered truthfully in the negative to the following three key questions: “Did you order those responsible to inflate the number of guests at meals in the prime minister’s residence?”; “Did you ever ask workers to list private events as state events?”; “Were you aware in real time of the breaking of rules regarding the ordering of food and other items for the prime minister’s residence?”

Netanyahu was deemed to be telling the truth regarding these matters. Under Israeli law, the results are not admissible as evidence in criminal court to prove the truth of the matter asserted.

According to a Jerusalem Post report Sara Netanyahu will be indicted on a range of corruption charges over the next 10 days.

While the Justice Ministry has been adamantly denying most reports related to content or timing of possible charges against the Netanyahus, this time the ministry refused to confirm or deny the report about whether Sara Netanyahu would be indicted within 10 days.

There were also indications that whether the indictment is filed in 10 days or beyond that time frame, a decision is near.

The accuracy of private polygraphs is hotly disputed, and there were no indications that the test addressed a range of other allegations against Sara Netanyahu.

In May 2016, the police recommended indicting Sara Netanyahu on fraud and breach of trust charges related to using public funds for buying food, paying special chefs, related costs for hosting private events and transferring publicly paid for furniture to a private residence.
