Hrant Dink: Belated Victim of Armenian Genocide

On January 19, 2007 the publisher and Editor of the bilingual weekly Istanbul newspaper AGOS was shot by a young Turkish nationalist. Who was this Armenian who had over the years continuously and persistently displayed courage through his intellectual campaign against the Turkish state apparatus? A state which not only denies the Armenian Genocide but also has created through a systematic racial indoctrination of its citizens a social and political climate in which such murders are tolerated if not accepted by society.

These sentiments were also expressed by the prominent columnist Mehmet Ali Birand. At the funeral in Istanbul, many mourners carried posters bearing the inscription “Murder Statute 301”. This law made the Defamation of the State as well as any of the state apparatus and facilities an offence. Hrant Dink was the only critic sentenced using this law. He received a6 months suspended prison sentence, a sentence viewed in fascist circles as a far too mild. After the founding of the Republic of Turkey, the new Turkish Criminal Code was created based on the example of the then Fascist Italian Criminal Code.
