The Tel Aviv District Court ordered businessman Ofer Glazer to pay compensation of NIS 250,000 to a woman he sexually harassed.

In a criminal trial in 2007, the Tel Aviv District Court sentenced Glazer to six months' imprisonment for sexual harassment and indecent assault, and ordered him to pay his victim NIS 15,000 compensation.

In addition to the criminal suit the complainant, a nurse who cared for Glazer's then-wife, billionaire Shari Arison at her home after surgery, filed a civil tort claim against Glazer, also in the Tel Aviv District Court, and demanded he pay her NIS 5 million in compensation.

The complainant claims Glazer sexually harassed her repeatedly after she began to care for Arison in the then-couple's marital home.
