(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - international, Truth and Justice for Fidan, Sakine and Leyla, January 6 in Paris (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Mon, 18 Dec 2017 08:38:10 +0200
Five years already ! Let us be numerous on January 6 in Paris to demand that the
government shed light on the triple murder of Kurdish activists Fidan (Rojbin) Dogan,
Sakine Cansiz and Leyla Saylemez. ---- Wednesday, January 9, 2013, Kurdish activists
Sakine Cansiz, Fidan Dogan (Rojbin) and Leyla Saylemez were coldly shot in the head, at
the premises of the Kurdistan Information Center, located at 147 rue La Fayette, Paris.
---- The investigation in France revealed numerous indications that the alleged murderer,
Ömer Güney, arrested a few days after the crime, had acted on behalf of the Turkish secret
service (MIT), as confirmed by the Prosecutor's indictment. the Republic in this case: "
many elements of the procedure allow to suspect the implication of the MIT in the
instigation and the preparation of the murders. "
However, the death of Ömer Güney, on December 17, 2016, to one month of his trial which
was to begin in Paris, on January 23, 2017, deprives us of a public trial which would have
made it possible to judge not only the performer, but also, and most importantly, the
sponsor, the Turkish state !
Five years later, justice is terribly lacking !

from Paris Gare du Nord, to Place de la République
While the investigation was completed in May 2015, and when Güney's serious health
problems were known, as soon as he was arrested, why was the trial set for such a long
time ? In deferring the holding of this trial, France missed a crucial opportunity to
judge, finally, a political crime committed on its territory ! Since the 1960s, no less
than 43 political murders have been committed on French soil. They all went unpunished !
Despite the promises made by the Interior Minister of the time, Manuel Valls, the day
after the assassinations, the French political authorities have never sought to shed light
on this triple murder. Always anxious to preserve their relations with Turkey, they did
not even take the trouble to receive the families of the victims, nor the representatives
of the Kurdish community.
And what about the refusal of the French government to lift the defense-secret on
information that could have allowed the progress of the judicial investigation ? Deprived
of this information, the judges in charge of the investigation finally closed the file
without being able to go up to the known sponsors.
Until when will France turn a blind eye to the drift of the Turkish regime which not only
permanently violates the rules of the rule of law and those of local democracy, but also
intends to rage in Europe? where he deploys his agents in charge of spying and eliminating
his opponents ?
The death of the alleged murderer in no way undermines our determination to fight for
truth and justice ! One or more of the performers is dead, but the sponsors are still
alive and free ! Five years later, the silence of the French authorities is more deafening
than ever. We demand from them all the light on these assassinations and, finally, justice!
