The Southern District Attorney's Office announced on Monday that it is suing in civil court three defendants convicted and sentenced to prison terms for stealing gasoline from IDF bases.
The district attorney filed a NIS 1 million civil lawsuit in the Kiryat Gat Magistrate's Court against the three men, who were convicted in a criminal trial last July and sentenced to various prison terms and fines. In a move that a spokesman for the state attorney's office dubbed "part of the state's battle against crime", the civil suit asks the court to order the three men to compensate the state for the stolen gasoline with the amount of NIS 1 million plus interest.
