June 18th, 2012 Back to all news

Judge Ruth Ronen of the Economic Department of the Tel Aviv Jaffa District Court dismissed in limine a motion to approve a derivative claim against Bezeq the Israel Telecommunications Corp. Ltd. (TASE: BEZQ), alleging that the company's shareholders were harmed by the distribution of approximately NIS 7 billion in dividends.

Judge Ronen accepted Bezeq's arguments that the claimant should not be permitted to file such claim, as he is neither a registered shareholder of the company nor a member of its board of directors. Additionally, Bezeq argued that the distribution of the dividends had been approved by the vast majority of the shareholders, at the company's general assembly.

Bezeq was represented by Mr. Pinhas Rubin (Firm Chairman), Mr. Lior Porat (Partner) and Mr. Asaf Avtuvi.
