Shurat HaDin Sues Lufthansa for Fees Owed Iran

Shurat HaDin is ratcheting up the pressure on the already cash-­starved Iranian government.
Shurat HaDin filed Restraining Notices against the German airline Lufthansa, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, demanding the airline freeze any funds or property owed to Iran as a result of Lufthansa’s continued flights to Tehran. International airlines that still provide services into Iran are obligated to pay the Iranian airport authority multiple fees for their use of the air­ port and its facilities.

This action was filed on behalf of the Braun and Leibovitch families, whose loved ones were injured or murdered in Iranian sponsored attacks by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and hold millions of dollars in unsatisfied federal court judgments against the outlaw regime.

According to Shurat HaDin’s President and Founder, Nitsana Darshan-­Leitner: “No airline in the Western world should be serving the Tehran airport. German companies like Lufthansa should not be profiting from business with Iran while billions of dollars in federal court judgments for Iranian terror victims remain unpaid. We will pursue the Iranian regime until it takes responsibility for its horrific actions and compensates the victims of its terrorism.”
