Shurat Hadin-The Israel Law Center on Tuesday filed a petition with the High Court of Justice against Justice Minister Tzipi Livni to compel her to cooperate with providing information relating to a US terror financing court case against the Bank of China.

The NGO said it had filed the petition after Livni's "failure to respond to a request for information issued by the New York District Court under the Hague Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters."

The Hague Convention is one of a series of international conventions which regulates and sometimes requires cooperation between states in providing relevant evidence in foreign court cases that happens to be held in a different state. 

The information requested pertains to the case brought in the US courts by Shurat Hadin against the bank on behalf of 22 victims of terrorism.
