Memorial Ceremony for Hrant Dink

19.January.2012 Taksim-Sisli, Istanbul


Tens of thousands of demonstrators march from Istanbul's Taksim Square to the building of Hrant Dink murder five years ago, the Agos newspaper headquarters in Siþli.

Journalist and writer Karin Karakasli, who is from Turkey’s Armenian community, read a press statement - on behalf of the group from the window of Agos - that slammed Tuesday’s ruling. “We want an end to this shame,” she said, referring to the five year long trial that has failed to shed light on the masterminds behind the murder. “They are telling us that the file has been closed. The Dink case is not a file that can be closed. The Dink case is a wound,” she continued.
