Turkish lawyer Bendal Celil Ezman appealed to the Turkish court,
demanding the recognition of the Armenian Genocide, condemnation of
Talat Pasha and renaming of streets with the latter's name.

Haberturk reports, that the lawyer participated in a
signature-gathering "Forgive us, Armenians" campaign. He insisted that
in 1915 Armenians fell victims to the planned pogroms. The lawyer
pointed out that he was denied to be given the documents on the
trials held in 1918 and 1922, when those responsible for displacing
Armenians in April and May 1915 were found guilty. "Turkey should face
its history. It is the first time Turkey hears such a case," he said.
