Shurat Hadin announced on Wednesday that former US House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is fighting its attempt to subpoena him which it had hoped would help it prove that Bank of China strong-armed Israel into obstructing a former Israeli government agent's testimony in the terror-financing case.

The NGO represents 22 families of American victims of terror attacks which took place in Israel from 2003-2008 in a long-standing litigation against the bank.

The Wultz family, also involved in the case, is not involved in the subpoena fight.

On September 11, the NGO had announced that it had subpoenaed Cantor for a September 30 deposition to reveal his possible discussions with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other Israeli officials, such as current and former US Ambassadors Ron Dermer and Michael Oren, about the bank's alleged obstruction of Israeli witnesses.
