Ogün Samast, the murderer of Armenian journalist Hrant Dink, is in danger of death. The Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet writes that the prison authorities asked Ogün Samast to move from the collective cells to a single cell. The prison administration received a flash message calling for the change of cell to ensure the physical safety of Ogün Samast as his life would be in danger. Cumhuriyet also reveals a letter from Ogün Samast sent to his wife in which Hrant Dink’s assassin claimed that he was regularly taken to a cell and beaten there. His assailants asked him to commit suicide. “They told me it would be better if I commit suicide, otherwise they will kill me,” Ogün Samast wrote.
Indeed if the murderer disappeared, the file already made complicated by the judges’ will track would be more blurred …
From the prison of Silivi, Ogün Samast was transferred to that of Kodjaeli. Sentenced to 22 years in prison, his sentence was reduced to 14 years. In prison for 10 years, it should go out in 4 years.
