Conditional released suspect of missionary murders to take civil service examination
İsmail Saymaz ISTANBUL - RadikalOne of the suspects accused of torturing and murdering three Christian missionaries in 2007 is set to take the Public Personnel Selection Examination (KPSS), an examination to join the civil service, on July 5.
Abuzer Yıldırım has been released on the condition that he will wear an electronic bracelet that will monitor his movements.
Pelin Balıkçı, the lawyer representing Yıldırım, applied to Malatya’s 2nd Criminal Court for permission to allow the suspect to take a university examination under supervision, which the court accepted.
Yıldırım will sit for an exam at İnönü University in Malatya at 9:30 a.m. in the company of probation officers.
German missionary, Tilman Ekkehart Geske, and Turkish converts, Necati Aydın and Uğur Yüksel, had their throats slit at the Zirve Publishing House in April 2007 in the southeastern city of Malatya after being tied up and interrogated about their missionary activities.
The trial of the five men accused of the attack is still ongoing seven years since the incident took place.
