Lev Leviev Group of Companies

Lev Leviev Group of Companies response to Adalah-NY letter to Oxfam International

Having fled the yoke of communism as a teenager living in Uzbekistan, Lev Leviev knows oppression firsthand and has used his self-made success to alleviate suffering around the world. His generosity to numerous groups and organizations is motivated by the wish to do good things for others. Despite the negative characterization of his philanthropy by some political groups, Lev Leviev continues to use his philanthropy solely toward that goal.

Part of the following timelines

Adalah-NY (Coalition for Justice in the Middle East) asks Oxfam not to accept donations from Lev Leviev due to alleged abuses in Occupied Territories & elsewhere

West Bank: UNICEF rejects support from Leviev after concerns raised over human rights impacts of related company's construction of Israeli settlements

"Conflict-free" diamonds don't necessarily respect all human rights, say "ethical diamond" industry leaders

Opinion: Granting Leviev's company contract for new UK embassy in Israel shows UK Govt. "not serious about stopping Israeli settlements" (Guardian)
