Gursel Donmez, deputy chairman of Turks Abroad and Related Communities Presidency (YTB), has said, "Autopsies of the eight Turkish people killed in the apartment fire in Germany will be made today. After the legal procedures, we will immediately launch necessary procedures for burial of the bodies in Turkey."

Donmez said Monday, "Turkish officials and NGOs are working very hard after the fire disaster in Germany. Coincidentally YTB president and a few experts of YTB were in Germany. They immediately went to the fire scene like the Turkish ambassador to Germany to investigate the incident."

Donmez also said that Turkish authorities were closely following the cause of the fire and measures by German authorities to bring the incident to light. He added that Turkey expected the German authorities to find the cause of the fire without leaving any doubt, like Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bozdag has already said.

"We do have enough reasons and bitter memories to approach the incident with prejudice," said Donmez. "However, we have to avoid making speeches hastily and showing emotional reactions."

Donmez reiterated that YTB was ready to help the relatives of the victims, especially with the burial of the bodies in Turkey.
