Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) deputy leader Umut Oran strongly criticized the prosecutor’s opinion in the Ergenekon case at a press briefing after a 10-hour visit to Silivri Prison.
Oran and CHP Secretary-General Bihlun Tamaylıgil paid a visit yesterday to former Chief of General Staff Gen. İlker Başbuğ, CHP İzmir deputy and journalist Mustafa Balbay, CHP Zonguldak deputy Professor Mehmet Haberal, Professor Fatih Hilmioğlu, retired Gen. Hurşit Tolon and journalist Tuncay Özkan at Silivri Prison, where they are being held for their alleged role in the Ergenekon organization, which is accused of planning to overthrow the government.
“We talked about next week’s trial. The prosecutor’s opinion is mind-blowing. It turns out that it has no legal value.”
“This opinion has no justice, rights or rule of law in any way. It is an unlawfully copied, pasted and formed opinion that does not contain legal value,” Oran said in front of Silivri Courthouse.
Oran also said the judicial process had been politically motivated from the beginning.
