Chagit Leviev Sofiev, Africa Israel Investments CEO and daughter of Israeli real estate developer, Lev Leviev, has filed a lawsuit that she is being excluded from the liquidation of Taly Diamonds in New York as reported by Bloomberg. She is a partner in Taly, and yet she claims that the inventory is being sold without her consent by her partners who are allegedly disbursing funds to themselves.
Taly CEO Yaron Turgeman filed a lawsuit against Chagit Leviev Sofiev, claiming that she was attempting to take undue control over the winding down of operations, but then dropped the suit. The complaint states that she is 50% owner of Taly, and has been “wholly excluded from all of the company’s business and decisions by the defendants.” In addition, Sofiev claims the Taly managers have shredded documents and have manipulated computer inventory systems to conceal their activities.
