"Bloomberg" reports that Chagit Sofiev-Leviev, the daughter of Lev Leviev, is at the center of a US lawsuit over Taly Diamonds LLC, in which she owns a 50% stake.
Chagit Leviev, 27, appointed CEO AFI USA Inc. the American arm of Africa-Israel Investments Ltd. (TASE:AFIL) in August, is unfairly trying to take control of liquidating Taly as president of partner LGC USA Holdings Inc., according to a Delaware Chancery Court lawsuit filed yesterday in Wilmington.
"Bloomberg" says, "Through LGC, Chagit Leviev is 'seeking to extract undeserved consideration from Taly,' which has thousands of diamonds, through a 'fire sale,' according to the complaint against LGC by Taly and its manager, Yaron Turgeman.
Taly alleges Chagit Leviev interfered with the business by demanding that she sign all business checks, and that she wrongly raised suspicions that someone was seen sneaking down a back stairway with a 'large brown paper bag,' when it was only an office manager taking checks to a company bookkeeper."
Taly is seeking a court injunction to allow it to control the wind-down of the business, and to exclude LGC from the process
