According to Israeli Hebrew-language daily Yedioth Ahronoth, the anticipated indictment comes amid allegations that she used $100,000 in public funds to pay for extravagant restaurant meals and then tried to conceal her activities by spreading the expenditures over numerous spurious receipts and invoices.
“Mandelblit has notified Mrs. Netanyahu's attorney of his intention to indict her after which she will be called in for a preliminary hearing,” Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
Afterwards, the attorney-general will make a final decision as to whether or not to pursue further legal measures, according to the paper.
In recent months, Israeli police have investigated Sara Netanyahu for four separate fraud allegations. According to Yedioth Ahronoth, she is expected to be indicted on one of these charges -- that relating to the restaurant expenditures -- after the remaining three were thrown out following initial review.
Netanyahu’s family, meanwhile, continues to deny all charges leveled against her.
“Sara Netanyahu is a courageous and honest woman; her actions have never been without merit,” the family said in a public statement.
