Tel Aviv city councilman Adv. Dan Lahat and his wife, Ronit Reichman, recently sold the house they were living in on Karl Netter St. in Tel Aviv for an estimated NIS 30 million, sources inform "Globes."
The house was bought by Adv. Tami Perry, daughter of the late Israel Perry, who died last March while serving a prison term. He was convicted in 2007 of stealing 320 million German marks from 9,000 of his clients in an affair that shook the country, called the German pension affair. He was sentenced to 10 years, and was serving his sentence at home after being diagnosed with cancer.
In a July 2009 "Globes" interview, Tami Perry expressed her belief in her father's innocence, and severely criticized the State Attorney. "My father is the 21st century Dreyfus," she said.
Together with her husband, Adv. Hagai Greenspoon, Tami Perry managed the Nofei Haaretz real estate company, which sold two office buildings in Ramat Hahayal in Tel Aviv to the Gitam BBDO advertising agency and Clal Insurance Enterprises Holdings Ltd. (TASE: CLIS) for NIS 90 million and built the Israel Police building in Ramat Hahayal and the new offices of Strauss Group Ltd. (TASE:STRS), among other things.
The house sold, which occupies 450 sq.m. not far from Rothschild Blvd., is actually a Townhouse residential building constructed in 1926 that is marked for preservation. It could house several families, but only one family lives there.
Lahat explained his sale by saying that his children had left home, and told "Globes" that Reichman and he had not yet decided where to move, but would stay in the area. In recent months, Lahat, son of former Tel Aviv mayor Shlomo Lahat, has been criticized for expressing opposition to the plan to build high-rises on Rothschild Blvd. because he lived close to the planned location. "Globes" has now revealed, however, that Lahat has sold his property.
