Müzeyyen Yüce / DUVARPolice received tip on possible ISIS attack days before deadly bombing in Ankara
The fifth hearing of the trial for fugitive suspects in the 2015 Ankara bombing perpetrated by members of a Turkish ISIS cell took place this week, and lawyers have called upon the suspects to be extradited from the camps in Syria in which they are being held.
“While some of the suspects can be found in camps in Syria, we have been talking to empty chairs for five years. One of the people who needs to be tried here is Ömer Deniz Dündar. This person was known to have planned and organized attacks. He came to and from Syria over and over again, yet nothing was done,” said lawyer Gamze Gökoğlu.
16 fugitive suspects are being tried for the bombing, which killed 103 people near the train station in Turkey’s capital Ankara and went down as the deadliest terror attack in the history of the Turkish republic.
Lawyers have filed a request with the Ministry of Interior in order to engage in efforts to extradite the suspects who are known to be held in camps in Syria. They have also launched a criminal complaint against the police department in the southeastern city of Gaziantep, alleging that the department withheld information about the case.Turkish ministry demands money from bombing victims' families
