Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein will follow up on a complaint that the Netanyahus took garden furniture designated for the Prime Minister’s Residence to their Caesarea home, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office first said the furniture was in his official residence in Jerusalem, but later added that the acquisition of the furniture for his private home met regulations.

According to Yedioth, an official at the Prime Minister’s Office ordered new furniture identical to the set in the Netanyahus’ home in Caesarea at a cost of tens of thousands of shekels. When the furniture arrived, the old set was apparently moved to the official residence, while the new furniture was delivered to Caesarea.

The complaint reached State Comptroller Joseph Shapira, who sent the file on to the attorney general based on regulations for cases in which criminal activity is suspected.
