The Prosecutor presented his opinion on the basis in the “Dargeçit JITEM Case”, which is a symbol case for the impunity policies in Turkey. In his opinion, the Prosecutor claimed the acquittal of the former police station commander and 18 police officers due to the “lack of concrete evidence on them having committed the crime.”
The lawsuit had been filed on the disappearance of specialised sergeant Bilal Batır, who allegedly gave information to 8 people, including 3 children, as well as families in Dargeçit district of Mardin between the dates October 29, 1995 and March 8, 1996; and then was transferred.
