Ankara West 9th Criminal Court of First Instance acquitted trustee defendant Süleyman Sarıyıldız in the lawsuit filed on the death of Emre Tombuloğlu, who died by falling down in the elevator shaft. Tombuloğlu was hired in the construction that was seized by TMSF and was assigned the work of elevator assembly despite his lack of expertise on the subject. The decree indicated that public officers have no “legal, administrative, financial or criminal liability” due to their duty following the July 15 coup attempt in accordance with Article 11 of the Statutory Decree No. 691 issued within the State of Emergency. Thus, the impunity regulation brought with the emergency decree was applied for a “work murder” as well. The elevator company’s owner, Y.D. was sentenced to 2 years and six months of imprisonment due to “reckless homicide.” The court turned this sentence into 31,850 TL judicial fine.
