PKK murder suspect Ömer Güney made 8 visits to Turkish capital of Ankara 19 days ago before the Paris killings, each lasting three to five days, according to investigations conducted by a unit of the Directorate General of Security.
Omer Guney, who had been detained in connection with the killing of three Kurdish women in Paris, is the prime suspect. Three Kurdish women --Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan and Leyla Soylemez-- had been found dead on January 9 at Kurdish Information Center in Paris. They had been shot in the head which appeared to be an execution-style killing. Cansiz was a co-founder of the militant PKK organization.
The unit also investigated whether he had visited other provinces, and determined the identities of some of the individuals he met during his trips to Turkey.
After evaluating the messages Güney sent from his phone number and email address, officials were able to uncover some of the individuals with whom he corresponded.
Through their enquiries, they established that two were associated with the PKK. The information attained was shared with French authorities.
In indicating that they had tried to contact the individuals with whom Guney corresponded, police expressed that arrests might be made during the following days.
It has also been learned that an investigation has been undertaken by the Attorney General in Malatya. After being questioned by security officials following their detainment, the persons in question will be questioned by prosecutors in Malatya.
It has also been gathered that following their return to Strasburg after the burial process, the families of the 3 deceased PKK females will appoint a lawyer to follow the case in Turkey.
The murders coincided with ongoing talks between Turkish intelligence officials and PKK's jailed leader Abdullah Ocalan in a bid to disarm the militant group.
