The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) holds ISIS' Turkey leader İlhami Balı, who is responsible for ordering a number of deadly bomb attacks, in a prisoner camp, according to police documents.
The document that was included in the files of the case into the fugitive suspects of ISIS' twin suicide bomb attack on Oct. 10, 2015 that targeted a peace rally in the capital Ankara was designated as classified.
Prior to the hearing of the case on July 16 at Ankara Fourth Heavy Penal Court, new intelligence documents concerning the suspects were added to the files, which didn't state the name of the camp.
Balı is known for ordering and financing the attacks on the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) rally in Diyarbakır in 2015, on activists from the Federation of Socialist Youth Associations (SGDF) in Suruç in 2015, on the peace rally in Ankara on Oct. 10, 2015, which was the most deadly ISIS attack ever carried out in Turkey, the killing of a Turkish soldier on the Syrian border, and the abduction of another one.Police received tip on possible ISIS attack days before deadly bombing in Ankara
Sixteen fugitive suspects and Erman Ekici, who is under arrest, are tried in the case into the Ankara bombing, which killed over 100 people and wounded scores of others.
According to the intelligence documents, suspects Mustafa Delibaşlar and his wife Fadile Delibaşlar and Cebrail Kaya are also held by the SDF.
Suspects Deniz Büyükçelebi, Bayram Yıldız, Kasım Dere, Muhammed Zana Alkan and Ömer Deniz Dündar went to the conflict zones in Syria and didn't return to Turkey, the documents said.
Speaking during the hearing on July 16, lawyer Eylem Sarıoğlu said that it's important to bring the suspects to Turkey.
Another lawyer, Gülşah Kaya, asked the reason for why the name of the camp that Balı is held was not disclosed in the files.
"His whereabouts are known, but he's not apprehended. It's a known fact that he met with MİT [National Intelligence Agency] officials at a hotel in Ankara. How was his whereabouts determined? Were any works carried out to bring him back to Turkey?" Kaya asked.
The rulings were issued in the main case of the bombing on Aug. 3, 2018 and the files of the fugitive suspects were separated from it.
Balı, Savaş Yıldız, Edremit Türe, Deniz Büyükçelebi, Yakup Selağzı, Kasım Dere, Nusret Yılmaz, Mustafa Delibaşlar, Walentina Slobodjanjuk, Muhammet Zana Alkan, Ömer Deniz Dündar, Cebrail Kaya, Ahmet Güneş, Kenan Kutval, Bayram Yıldız and Hasan Hüseyin Uğur are the fugitive suspects.Surveillance footage of Suruç massacre believed to have been erased or concealed
