On January 31, 2015, the
Chaldean Educational Center of America (CECA), in Madison Hts.,
MI, hosted between the hours of 2:00 - 6:00 pm tens of families,
most of whom were Iraqi Christians attending the event, to
launch a class action lawsuit against the government of Iraq and
the Kurdistan Regional government. The attendees were native
Iraqis, who due to many reasons including persecution, were
forced to flee Iraq and leave behind, lands, properties, jobs
and businesses, not to mention, over 7314 years of history and
NAZEK A. GAPPY, P.C. addressed the audience at CECA main
conference room about the lawsuit process as well as the
requirement to be included within this class action lawsuit. She
also talked face to face with those who were either waiting in
the lobby or lining the hallway to obtain the forms.
Mr. Amer Hanna Fatuhi, the president of the
Chaldean Educational Center of America, assisted Attorney NAZEK
A. GAPPY, P.C. during her speech as well as in answering many
important questions that were asked by the audience.
