Africa Israel U.S. CEO Sues to Liquidate Taly Diamonds

Updated on

Chagit Leviev Sofiev, daughter of billionaire Israeli real-estate developer Lev Leviev, sued to take over the stalled liquidation of a New York diamond business she said was being looted.

Leviev Sofiev, chief executive officer of the U.S. operations of Africa Israel Investments Ltd., said in a lawsuit that her partners in Manhattan-based Taly Diamonds LLC are dragging their feet in winding down the precious-stone business so they can get at the company’s inventory.
