'Acquittal and statute of limitations' decision in case of murder by unknown assailants

img

NEWS CENTER - The acquittal decisions given in the case of 19 unsolved murders committed in Ankara were found appropriate.

 
The Court of Appeal ruled against 18 murder by unknown assailants committed in Ankara in the 1990s, including former Minister of Internal Affairs and then Chief of Police Mehmet Ağar, then Head of Special Operations Department Ibrahim Sahin, and former MIT director, Retired Colonel Korkut Eken. The acquittal decisions given in the case with the defendants were found appropriate. The court ruled that the file was dismissed due to the statute of limitations regarding the murders of Abdulmecit Baskin and Behçet Cantürk, and that the acquittal was appropriate in terms of the other murders.
 
One of the members wrote a 160-page dissenting opinion on the decision. The file will go to the Supreme Court.
 
In the case that started in 2013, the previous acquittal decision was overturned by the Court of Appeal in 2021 and the defendants were tried again. In the decision, it was pointed out that the statements of the defendant Ayhan Carkın were not discussed sufficiently, and it was requested that "the identity of the murder bullets be investigated".
 
As a result of the appeal decision, a retrial started against the defendants, including Agar, but an acquittal decision was given once again on May 26, 2023. Although the court overturned the acquittal decision of the Court of Appeal, it insisted on its initial decision.
