A criminal court in Turkey on Wednesday acquitted retired Brigadier Gen. Levent Ersoz of charges of having killed Turkey's 8th president, Turgut Ozal.

Ankara's 4th High Criminal Court said that there was a lack of positive proof for the charges.

Ersoz's lawyer cited a secret witness who had said that Ozal's wife Semra had poisoned the president, and pled that Semra Ozal should be tried on the charges.

Ozal died of a suspicious heart attack on April 17, 1993 while still in office.
