Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara Netanyahu stand next to the dedication plaque of the USA embassy in Jerusalem, after the dedication ceremony of the new US embassy in Jerusalem, May 14, 2018. In 2016, a Jerusalem labour court ruled that she had insulted and raged at household staff in the prime minister's official residence.
Mrs Netanyahu, 59, is accused of misusing around $100,000 in state funds by hiding that she hired a cook while continuing to order food to the Prime Minister's residence.
Netanyahu, who looked tense as she walked into Sunday's hearing, denies any wrongdoing. There's no indication that the allegations against the prime minister or his wife are having an effect on voters, with Netanyahu gaining support in recent polls.
Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leaves the Magistrate's Court in Jerusalem al-Quds on October 7, 2018.
Netanyahu's lawyers have argued she was oblivious to the regulations and that the meals were ordered by an assistant and served to visiting dignitaries.
Police questioned Prime Minister Netanyahu for several hours on Friday as part of investigations into alleged corruption by the long-serving premier.
Netanyahu is suspected of bribery, fraud and breach of trust in "Case 1000", also known as the "Gifts Case", regarding his relationship with Israeli businessman Arnon Milchan and Australian businessman James Packer.

But the case has again turned the spotlight on the Netanyahu family and past allegations of misbehavior.
Earlier, already in Israel thousands of people at the protest demanded to prosecute Prime Minister Netanyahu.
Avi Diskin, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said that the corruption cases could in fact ultimately help Mr Netanyahu by "strengthening re-affiliations" with him.
In front of the residence, protesters gathered with a large banner bearing Netanyahu's face and the words "crime minister" and chanting slogans calling for justice.
Police have recommended Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted in two cases, though the attorney general has yet to decide whether to do so.
In one of them he allegedly tried to secure a secret deal with the publisher of Israel's top-selling newspaper Yediot Aharonot to ensure positive coverage in return for pushing forward a law that would have limited the circulation of a rival. In recent months, one key former advisor to the Netanyahu family has turned state witness, raising the stakes against them.
