Sara Netanyahu holding up husband's plea bargain
Opposition Leader's wife reportedly objects to possible plea bargain, refuses to accept his departure from politics.

Opposition Leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife, Sara Netanyahu, is holding up negotiations aimed at reaching a plea bargain for the former prime minister, according to a report by Channel 13 Sunday evening.

Sara Netanyahu is reportedly the primary opponent in the Netanyahu camp of the arrangement being drawn up between her husband and Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit; in particular, the latter’s insistence that Netanyahu resign from the Knesset and leave politics for an extended period of time.

Netanyahu’s attorneys are reportedly backing the plea bargain, while some staff members close to Attorney General Mandelblit support prosecuting the case without a plea bargain arrangement.
