Turkish journalist Nedim Şener has testified at the subsequent trial session related to the assassination of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink.
Şener, who wrote a book about Dink, noted that in 2011 he was arrested as a member of Ergenekon terrorist group for his attempt to study the details of Dink’s assassination, Turkish newspaper BirGun reports.
“All the state authorities are guilty. Some of them knew [about the assassination], others intentionally closed their eyes to that, and still others were somehow involved [in that]. Solving Dink’s assassination is the dignity of the state,” Şener noted.
According to him, in order to understand the occurrence, it is necessary to read Dink’s article entitled “80 year-old mystery of Sabiha Gökçen.” “After that article, the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces targeted Dink, the National Security Service following the same path.” Political factors were also present in his assassination. If you want to find those liable for his assassination, listen attentively to the lie told at the trial. It is first of all the judges, who considered his murder case, who should be tried,” the journalist stressed.
