Court to Hear Ergenekon Case
The Turkish judiciary is preparing for the most comprehensive case in it's history. The indictment of members of Ergenekon, which consists of 2,500 pages is complete. The suspects face a number of charges.
The investigation process, which started with the discovery of 27 hand grenades in a suburban depot in Istanbul last year, has reached the final stage.
So far 49 suspects have been detained in the name of the Ergenekon terror organization investigation. Among the detainees are prominent figures of Turkiye such as retired generals, journalists, professors, politicians and gang leaders.
Meanwhile, the rumors such that the indictment is not ready or not enough evidence to prepare an indictment turned out to be false with the announcement by the prosecutor that the 2,500 page indictment had long been typed to transfer to a judiciary network known as the National Judiciary Network, which took more than three months.
The time spent on the preparation of the indictment is considered to be natural since transferring the file to a virtual medium takes a lot of time. The documentation of the indictment has been transported to the National Judiciary Network for more than three months. The indictment is considered to be the most comprehensive in Turkish judiciary history.
The 2,500 page document includes serious allegations. The suspects who have been under arrest or not will be charged with the offenses of setting up a terror organization, being members of a terror organization, provoking the public for armed insurgency against Republic of Turkiye.
A capable court to be assigned for the Ergenekon case is expected to sustain or dismiss the case within 15 days. The Indictment is said to be distributed to the parties through CD's due to the sheer size of the documentation.
