A three-judge panel of the Tel Aviv District Court on Wednesday ordered Bank
Hapoalim and three pension funds to pay around NIS 2.1 million to the estate of
an elderly Holocaust survivor for liability in allowing the illegal withdrawal
of her money by her home caregiver.
The caregiver, Sofia Neizlin, took
care of the Holocaust survivor Shprintza Schechter starting in February 2001,
when she became unable to care for herself independently.
