On Friday–January 13 at 12:00 noon Armenia’s from Los Angeles and Orange County will gather in Downtown Los Angeles for a press conference led by the law firms of Geragos & Geragos–Kabatack Brown Kellner–and Yeghiayan & Associates–the attorneys who settled the lawsuits against New York Life and AXA during the past year for $37.5 million dollars.
The firms now represent the heirs of Armenia’s who perished in the Armenian genocide in a lawsuit–which will be filed on January 13–against Deutsche Bank and Dresdner Bank. The lawsuit alleges that the German banks have systematically thwarted the recovery of millions of dollars in assets deposited by Armenia’s prior to the 1915 Genocide. In addition–the lawsuit seeks damages for looted Armenian assets forcibly taken by the Turkish government during the Genocide. Deutsche Bank funded the Turkish government’s genocide of Armenia’s in return for these looted Armenian assets.
Friday’s press conference and protest will be held at the Los Angeles office of Deutsche Bank regarding its failure to return money and assets belonging to heirs of Armenia’s who perished in the Armenian genocide. Organizers encourage the participation of as many people as possible in order to get the attention of Deutsche and Dresdner bank executives who have ignored their banks’ wrongdoings.
Guest speakers will include attorneys Mark J. Geragos–Brian Kabatack–and Vartkes Yeghiayan. Lunch will be donated by Zankou Chicken.
The Downtown offices of Deutsche Bank are located at 300 South Grand Avenue–Los Angeles–CA 90071. The press conference and protest will take place from 12:00 to 1:00 PM.
