ISTANBUL (Agos) — Trial of the public officials as part of Dink case continues today. Before the 7th hearing that will be held on November 7, 8, 10 and 11, Friends of Hrant made a statement to the press in front of the court house.
Reminding that the course of the case is changed in accordance with the political developments, Friends of Hrant stated: “We don’t care about the political developments. The murderers of Hrant Dink are not unidentified. Their names and positions are very well known. Their parts in this murder are obvious.”
Friends of Hrant pointed out that former chief of Istanbul Security Directorate Celalettin Cerrah, former chief of Istanbul Police Directorate Intelligence Branch Ahmet Ilhan Güler and the former chief of General Security Directorate Intelligence Branch Sabri Uzun will be heard during this round of hearings and asked addressing the public officials who have been saying that they hadn’t seen the reports about the murder: “Will those public officials explain such absurdities? Will the court press them to explain? We will see soon enough.”
Friends of Hrant also mentioned the arrested writers of Cumhuriyet and MPs of HDP: “The operations against Cumhuriyet and HDP weaken our trust in justice even more. That is why we won’t forget who are the murderers and perpetrators. As HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtas, who has been arrested a couple days ago, says: Fear may be contagious, but so is courage.”
