Sara Netanyahu is ‘dangerous,’ ex-employee says

A former employee at the Prime Minister’s Residence tells Army Radio that Sara Netanyahu is “dangerous” and “drinks until she is drunk.”

The former worker also alleges violence by the prime minister’s wife.

“There [in the Netanyahu residence], I was nothing. You could insult me, put me down, humiliate me, and bully me all you wanted, I wasn’t considered a person,” the former employee says. “I carry this pain with me until today, even years after I finished working there.

In terms of abuse, she says “certainly there was violence: physical violence, verbal violence, real violence.”

“This woman is dangerous. I’m happy that she was summoned for investigation, and we’re praying someone stops this abuse.”

The woman also accused Sara Netanyahu of drinking heavily.

“Sara drinks far more than a normal amount, drinks until she’s drunk. I saw her staggering around the house,” she says.

A source close to the Netanyahu family tells the radio that the woman was seeking to extort the family for money. “She also made her false claims in the Labor Court, and they were refuted,” the source says.

Sara Netanyahu will be questioned under caution on Thursday amid an ongoing investigation into spending irregularities.
