Ticket revenue will be donated to the Hrant Dink Foundation. The event starts at 10:30 p.m. and tickets are available at Biletix booths for 40 Turkish Liras.
Dink was shot to death Jan. 19, 2007. The court’s verdict in the case, which was finally announced Jan. 17, raised eyebrows by refusing to connect Dink’s murder to his identity as an Armenian, and by indicating that there was no organizational structure behind the crime.
