One of the main suspects in the assassination of Turkish-Armenian journalist, Agos weekly editor-in-chief Hrant Dink in 2007, Erhan Tuncel, whose whereabouts are unknown at the moment, said he has no intention to escape.
Tuncel reportedly said he is going to produce new facts regarding the Dink murder and surrender to the authorities.
“This murder showed that there is an organization higher than Ergenekon, functioning in the country and it prevents exposure of the crime,” he told Star, a Turkish newspaper. “I am a small participle in this system. But if my arrest was ordered, the others must be detained too. The gendarmerie of Tranzon should be called to account, as its role in the murder is great. All knew that Dink is going to be killed but took no action to prevent it.”
Ergenekon is the name given to an alleged clandestine, secularist ultra-nationalist organization in Turkey with ties to members of the country's military and security forces. Ergenekon is by some believed to be part of the "deep state". Alleged members have been indicted on charges of plotting to foment unrest, among other things by assassinating intellectuals, politicians, judges, military staff, and religious leaders, with the ultimate goal of toppling the incumbent government.
