Turkish Intelligence Ordered Hrant Dink’s Murder, Says Lawyer

Hrant Dink was the chief editor at Agos newspaper

YEREVAN (Armenpress)—Fethiye Çetin, the lawyer of Armenian journalist Hrant Dink who was murdered by Turkish nationalists, has exposed new details regarding this case in her new book titled I Am Ashamed: Trials on Hrant Dink’s Murder Trial. As Armenpress reports, citing Turkish Haberler.com, Fethiye Çetin states in her book that the National Intelligence Service of Turkey gave the order of Hrant Dink’s assassination via a secret code in Cyrillic alphabet.

Among other things, Fethiye Çetin emphasized that a man called Ramazan, who introduced himself as a worker of the Chief Department of the National Security Service of the Eastern Anatolia region, called Çetin in March 2010 and said that he had important documents regarding Hrant Dink’s murder.

She got in touch with Ramazan via Skype, who showed her secret documents with the emblem of the National Intelligence Service on it. The unknown person told her that secret cryptograms are used in all the documents. Dink’s lawyer explains how they managed to read Dink’s name via Cyrillic alphabet in the aforesaid documents.

    Nothing happens in Turkey, one of the most police rulled states in the world, without the knowlege and blessing of the Intelligence and the Army. Is there still any naive who beleive it was possible to assassinate Hrant Dink without the blessing of the Highest authorities?

    To our Knight
    Who had no sword
    Only fingers on pens
    That carved on many Khatch-Kars (Cross-Stones)
    He was born A martyr . . .
    Still alive
    With his astrocytes . . .
    For Justice must prevail.
