Çetin Doğan pointed as top man
ISTANBUL - Doğan News Agency
Çetin Doğan. Hürriyet photoRetired Gen. Çetin Doğan was listed as “the number one” leader in the illegal Ergenekon organization chart, retired Col. Cemal Temizöz, who is under arrest in the same ongoing Balyoz (Sledgehammer) case as the general, said yesterday during his plea in Istanbul’s 10th Court for Serious Crimes at Silivri Prison.
Temizöz said he saw Doğan’s name on a chart given to the former head of the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) in 2001 at the time he was on duty. Doğan also took the stand and confirmed that his name was on the chart. Temizöz also said due to a privacy order of the board, the chart was not shown to anyone.
“The court board should not act outside of justice and science. If the court had rejected TÜBİTAK’s report, then you would turn the [suspects’] voices down today one more time,” Temizöz said.
Balyoz is an alleged military coup plot against the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).
