An aide to Israeli mogul Arnon Milchan recently told investigators that Sara Netanyahu asked that a bracelet bought for her be returned because her husband — former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu — said it looked “Romanian,” according to television reports.

Hadas Klein reportedly made the remark while giving fresh testimony in one of the three graft cases that Netanyahu is on trial for. The ex-premier, who made a rare court appearance today, denies wrongdoing.

A statement on Netanyahu’s behalf denies the report and calls it “political manipulation.”

“Another criminal leak to the media,” the statement says.
