Wet blanket Netanyahu won’t air laundry spending

Prime Minister Netanyahu files an appeal demanding that details on the money his official residence spent on laundry during 2014 be kept under wraps.

In his legal demand to suppress the relevant documents, which were requested by the Movement for Freedom of Information, Netanyahu names the attorney general and the official in charge of freedom of information in his office.

He says the information is “private.”

Netanyahu and his family have been criticized in recent years amid reports of excessive spending, with some cases yielding official probes.
