The Turkel Committe, tasked with investigating the events of the the Mavi Marmara raid which left nine Turkish activists dead in May, issued an open invitation on Sunday for passengers and crew to testify.

A letter requesting help in building a list of prospective witnesses who were on the ship was sent to the Turkish embassy by the committee, a spokesman said Tuesday.

"We are aware that there are issues which arise regarding arranging such testimony, and would be happy to work with the embassy and with the Turkish authorities ... to overcome any such obstacles," the spokesman quoted the letter as saying.
