Mavi Marmara passenger Ahmet Aydin won 250 thousand TL for moral and a thousand in financial damages.

Kayseri Humanitarian Relief Association lawyer Ersin Umman, who filed a punitive damages case against Israel on behalf of Mavi Marmara passenger Ahmet Aydin Bekar at the 8th Kayseri regional court house, said that the state who once again "tort liability" is obliged to pay 250 thousand TL in moral damages and a thousand in financial damages.

During the press conference held in the building, Umman reminded everyone how the Mavi Marama ship which set sail en route to Gaza in 2010, to deliver aid was attacked by the Israeli military forces in international shores.

"Its official that Israel committed war crimes"

Umman said that there were several cases, both international and domestic, filed against the state of Israel after the incident. He also pin pointed that under the international criminal court, it has been registered that Israel has committed war crimes in the Mavi Marmara attack.

Within this scope, Umman reported that Mavi Marmara passenger Ahmet Aydin Bekar, who lives in Kayseri has won the case against Israel and stated that:

"In accordance to the ruling, the state of Israel who once again "tort liability" is obliged to pay 250 thousand TL in moral damages and a thousand in financial damages. This decision will act as a precedent to other ongoing cases across Turkey. In particular, during the times when the talks with Israel are in the current agenda, it is a very important decision to register the accuracy of the situation. The state of Israel should compensate the losses of the victims and the same punitive damages should be ruled in international court hearings, which are holding similar cases."
