Armenia’s to Deutsche Bank: Thou Shalt Not Steal

Hundreds of Armenia’s gathered Friday to protest the failure of Deutsche Bank and Dresdner Bank to return money and assets belonging to the heirs of Armenian genocide victims. The descendants of policyholders filed a class action lawsuit against the two German banks Friday seeking the recovery of millions of dollars that have been wrongfully withheld since the Genocide of 1915. Brian Kabateck–Vartkes Yeghiayan–and Mark Geragos–who have won two similar cases against New York Life and AXA–are representing the plaintiffs. Yeghiayan described the case as being "about the restitution of history. It’s about justice. And it’s about time."
