Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's wife is expected to soon be indicted on criminal charges of fraud.

Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is likely to inform Sara Netanyahu of the indictment in the coming weeks, Haaretz reported Monday.

Sara Netanyahu is suspected of diverting nearly $112,000 in public funds for private use, for things such as dinner parties and hiring private chefs at the prime minister's official residence.

Sara Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing. Her lawyer has called the allegations against her "ridiculous" and part of the "persecution of the Netanyahu family."

Prime Minister Netanyahu is under investigation in two separate corruption cases alleging he received illegal gifts and bartered with a local newspaper magnate to win favorable news coverage.
