HDP MPs Mehmet Adıyaman, Osman Baydemir, Ahmet Yıldırım and İmam Taşçıer have been taken into custody today to give statement to the prosecutor. They are released, after they have given their statements.
On Friday, the recent round of hearings ended. Arrested suspect Ali Fuat Yılmazer continues to present his defence. He said, “The groups that we called dark organizations in the past are within the state now. That is why we live in an empire of terror now. No one goes outside. In this sense, the murder achieved its goal.” The court decided to hear 51 people including Hanefi Avcı and Muammer Güler as witnesses.
Full text of the speech that Rakel Dink gave on the 10th anniversary of the murder of Hrant Dink.
On the 10th year of the murder, Hrant Dink is commemorated where he was shot.
On the occasion of the 10th year of Hrant Dink's death, the ones who crossed his path and the ones who knew him wrote for Hrant Dink from “inside” and “outside.” Here are three letters to Hrant Dink from the “inside”.
It has been 10 years since the founder and editor-in-chief of Agos Hrant Dink was shot to death on January 19, 2007, in front of the office of Agos newspaper. Since then, only a few steps have been taken in revealing the ones who ordered this murder and who planned the murder. Here is a brief timeline covering the key actors and cornerstones of the case that has been going on for 10 years.
One of the judges of Dink murder case remarked on the murder during a trial: “Think about a book. You know what will happen in the end, the moment you start to read it.” It is the exact definition of the process leading Hrant Dink to death.
Dink murder suspect Ali Fuat Yılmazer talked about the claim that he was assigned as the chief to the Office C of General Directorate of Security Intelligence Branch, because he is a member of the Gulenist organization. He said that the minister of interior had assigned him and claimed that Abdülkadir Aksu, who was the minister at that time, should be arrested.
In Dink case, Director of Office C of the General Directorate of Security Intelligence Branch Ali Fuat Yılmazer started to present his defence. Yılmazer accused the personnel of Istanbul and Trabzon directorates of security. He pointed out former chief of General Directorate of Security Intelligence Branch Engin Dinç's relations with Trabzon gendarmerie personnel; he said, “Dinç had inexplicable relations.” He also talked about Ergenekon and KCK operations.
