Families of Bus Crash to Sue Israel

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Russian families, who lost relatives in the Wednesday's tour bus crash in southern Israel, waited for authorities to identify the bodies of their loved ones, flown home Thursday evening.

Many of the relatives are still awaiting the release of their family member's name by Russian officials.

Meanwhile, several of the families retained Israeli lawyer Eli Gerlitz to represent them in suits against the State of Israel.

"I explained to everyone that there's a compensatory payments law in Israel so there's no need to worry," Gerlitz said.

"Israel will look for ways to compensate the casualties' families and the people [who were] injured," he said.

While Israeli law does not differentiate between its citizens and foreigners, Gerlitz warned the families that processing the claims is a time-consuming process.

"With all the Israeli empathy to the crash victims, they shouldn't expect the payment to be swift," he said.
