Court to try slain Turkish-Armenian soldier’s commander

PanARMENIAN.Net - A military court in Turkish southeastern province of Diyarbakır has agreed to try the commander of slain ethnic Armenian soldier Sevag Şahin Balıkçı, Nouvelles d'Arménie reports.

Non-commissioned officer Sabrettin Ersöz will stand trial on malpractice charges.

Sevag Şahin Balıkçı, 25, was killed in a Turkish military unit on April 24, 2011. The Armenian was killed after the gunshot wound he received while reportedly playing a practical joke with his co-serviceman, who was later allowed to walk free despite the indictment stipulating for 9 years behind bars for murder by negligence.
