Ex-Israeli prime minister sued in US for attack on Gaza flotilla

A case has been opened against former Israeli Prime Minister and Defence Minister Ehud Barak in the US who is one of the responsible perpetrators for the attack upon the Mavi Marmara Flotilla, and is the first person to carry the embargo upon Gaza into effect.

A case has been opened against former Israeli Prime Minister and Defence Minister Ehud Barak in the US who is one of the responsible perpetrators for the attack upon the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, and is the first person to carry the embargo upon Gaza into effect.

The family of Furkan Doğan, an American citizen who was martyred with the attack, has made a plea in the US for the attacks to the vessels including Mavi Marmara of Gaza Freedom Flotilla. Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak was present in the US for a conference. He is the first person to decide, and to carry the embargo upon Gaza into effect. Barak is one of the responsible for the attack upon the Mavi Marmara flotilla. The attorney’s of the Mavi Marmara case were able to get in contact with Ehud Barak to convey him the written notice with a file that was prepared earlier, even though Mossad agents had tried to hinder this attempt of communication. Ehud Barak who had suffered a shock with the notice will stand trial in the United States.

The lawsuit in the name of Furkan Doğan’s family will be tried in the Central District of California. Ehud Barak will be tried for the crimes on the board of Mavi Marmara both to receive imprisonment and to pay compensation. Other plaintiffs and families of martyrs will also be able to join the case.

The case being heard in the United States is being looked after with the leadership of prosecuter Prof.Dr Geoffrey Nice QC who had put Serbian murderer Milosevic on trial. Within the team, Stoke&White is looking after the coordination within the case, Rodney Dixon QC who is the attorney of Mohammed Mursi, and American attorney’s Hydee Dijsktal and Dan Stormer are also present.

Ehud Barak with the case to be heard at the Central District of California will be put on trial for murdering civillians and Furkan Doğan within international waters. Other reasons include "international terrorism", “Willful killing”, “attempt of willful killing”, “intentionally causing serious injury to body or health”, “plundering”, , “intentionally causing damage to property”, “restriction of people's freedom and instigating violent crime”. Barak will be tried for planing and leading these actions.

The trial is a first in America and is also the first time an Israeli Prime Minister will be put on trial for reasons of international terrorism

Ehud Barak had just slipped in being arrested in France when going to a firearms expo in 2010 by hopping off the plane last minute with the trial opened against him by the wives of martyrs Cevdet Kılıçlar and Necdet Yıldırım in France.

The investigation is still continuing regarding all the perpretrators within the International Criminal Court (ICC). As it is also known, the ICC prosecuter had given the decision that the attack upon the Mavi Marmara Flotilla by Israel was a war crime. The red notice which has been issued by the 7th High Criminal Court in Istanbul is also been waiting to be sent to Interpol through the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Turkey to be put into practice.
