Istanbul court rules against return of historical Armenian property

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Istanbul court rejected lawsuit filed by the Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople for the return of the historical Armenian property, Sanasarian building to the Patriarchate, lawyer Ali Alibeyoglu told Hürriyet daily.

No clear reasons were provided behind the rejection, with well-founded arguments refused to be considered, the lawyer said.

According to Alibeyoglu, the court ruling will be appealed against, with a petition to be filed to the European Court should a necessity arise, according to Panorama.am.

Armenian benefactor Mkrtich Sanasarian initiated construction of the building in 1895. Ownerships rights to the building belonged to Sanasarian Foundation, with Armenian Patriarchate made responsible for the Foundation management.
