Turkey's Constitutional Court ruled the 2007 murder case of Turkish Armenian writer, Hrant Dink, an "ineffective investigation" on Thursday.
Ogun Samast murdered Turkish Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in January 2007 claiming Dink insulted “Turkishness”. Dink was editor-in-chief of the bilingual Turkish-Armenian newspaper Agos and was considered among the most prominent Armenian voices in Turkey.
The court decided unanimously that the rights of the Dink family were violated due to an "ineffective investigation."
The wife of Dink, Rakel, the deceased's brother Orhan, and his children Delal, Arat, and Sera appealed individually to the Constitutional Court, showing reason they were not keep up to date with the progress of the legal investigation.
Dink’s killer, Samast, was jailed for 22 years in 2011. Police investigations following his capture, however, revealed a possible link to an ultra-nationalist organization.Güncelleme Tarihi: 18 Temmuz 2014, 09:45
