Sixteen executives and board members of Israel Credit Cards (also known as Cal) have been ordered to pay a total of $4.5 million by an Israeli court. 

The individuals are accused of enabling Cal to illegally clear credit card payments to online gambling and pornography businesses between the years 2006 and 2009.
