“Leaking of the footage is part of a dirty game”
The press statement was read by Bircan Yorulmaz and the powers trying to abuse the case for their political interests were criticized.
Highlights of the statement are as the following:
“The ones who want to abuse Dink murder for their political games don't concern us. We want everyone, regardless of their political circle, to stand trial: the instigators, the perpetrators, the ones who turned a blind eye to the plans of murder and the ones ones who praised the murderers. This is the only aim of our years-long struggle.
“The ones who say things like 'Hrant Dink was murdered by racist-nationalist fascists or by Gulenists' are trying to abuse this murder and they don't concern us.
“Leaking of the footage, which seems to be held by the state for almost ten years, is not a step for clarifying the murder, but rather a product of the same dirty political games.
“Once again, we say with determination and insistence: until everyone who have a hand in this murder, from the perpetrators to the planners, from the public officials who actively worked with the murderers to the police chiefs, bureaucrats and politicians who didn't do anything though they had the power to prevent this murder stand trial, this case won't be closed.”
