The 2012 Burgas Terror Attack: Father of Bulgarian Victim Wants Israeli Representation

Written by on November 13, 2016 in Bulgaria, Miscellaneous - No comments

Ahmed Kyosev, the father of Mustafa Kyosev, the bus driver who was murdered by terrorists at Burgas Airport in 2012, along with five Israeli tourists, has asked for Israeli legal representation.

“Israelis are very honest people. I want their lawyer to represent me. I am impressed by their honesty and fairness. Israelis will never lie to me or cheat me,” The Jerusalem Post quoted Kysoev saying. 

The trail against two Herzbollah operatives, who are believed to be in Lebanon, was postponed again last Thursday. The judge wanted to give the attorneys time to contact the surviving victims of the attack and the family members of those murdered.

A lawyer from Tel Aviv is representing 40 Israeli families affected by the attack, while a Bulgarian lawyer is representing one family.

The bombing at Burgas Airport on July 18th, 2012, is the only terrorist attack perpetrated by Radical Islam on Bulgarian soil. Six people were killed, thirty-two people were injured.
