Halkbank, which applied to the Second District Court of Appeal to appeal the decision of a lower court on the claim that it could not be tried in the USA before, and whose appeal was rejected, has made a new application to the court.
Halkbank, whose appeal to the higher court to end the trial in the USA was rejected, appealed again. The lawyers argued that the court board made “an extremely important legal mistake”.
The bank’s application to the appeal court on the grounds that it could not be tried in the United States under the “foreign state immunity law” was rejected.
According to the news of VOA Turkish’s Can Kamiloğlu, Halkbank requested a retrial and a new trial, and the court to review the previous rejection decision. Halkbank’s 27-page request for a retrial and a new hearing was made by the bank’s lawyers in the USA, Robert M. Cary, Simon Latcovich, Eden Schiffmann, James w. With Kirkpatrick’s signature, it was filed on November 5 via the Justice Department’s electronic filing system. Halkbank’s lawyers added the reasoned decision of the same court on October 22 to their petitions.
In Halkbank’s application, it was stated that for the first time in the history of the country, an institution under the scope of the “Independent Foreign State Immunity Law” was given the green light for the trial of an institution in the USA, and that the court made an extremely important legal mistake. The petition included the decisions taken in similar cases before.
