Former Chief of General Staff Hilmi Özkök is set to testify in the Ergenekon coup-plot case tomorrow.  

Özkök's testimony represents a significant landmark in the four-year-old case, as he breaks his silence about coup attempts and the role of his former comrades.

Ergenekon is an alleged illegal organization composed of high-level military officers, bureaucrats, journalists and academics that aimed to topple the government in 2003-2004.

Özkök, who commanded the military from 2002 to 2006, still stands as the most critical figure with the most information about this organization.
