  • [01] PASOK leader condemns Turkish-Armenian journalist's murder

  • [01] PASOK leader condemns Turkish-Armenian journalist's murder

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) leader and Socialist International (SI) President George Papandreou made a statement on Friday condemning the assassination of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in Istanbul earlier in the day.

    "Hrant Dink was an intellectual journalist who worked hard with consistency, a profound feeling of responsibility and great energy for democratic rights and freedom of the Press in Turkey, facing judicial prosecutions," he said.

    High-profile Turkish-Armenian editor, Hrant Dink, a frequent target of nationalist anger for his comments on the mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks during World War One, was shot as he left his weekly newspaper Agos around 1300 GMT Friday in the centre of Istanbul.

    "His assassination is an act of violence that constitutes a blow to efforts being made to strengthen the country's European prospects," Papandreou added and pointed out that "Hrant Dink is the victim of the fanaticism of those forces that are pursuing obscurantism."

    Lastly, Papandreou said that "all we democratic socialists in Greece and all over the world condemn the hideous assassination of Hrant Dink and express the hope that the Turkish authorities will take every necessary action to achieve the complete solving of the crime and the sending of the perpetrators to Justice."
