Opposition MP asks Turkish PM questions about Istanbul bomber
ANKARAAn opposition lawmaker has asked Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu whether Russian citizen Diana Ramazova, the perpetrator of last week’s terror attack in Istanbul, was given a diplomatic passport by Turkish officials.
“Is it true that Diana Ramazova was given a diplomatic passport and was given special permission to enter Syria via Turkey?” Sezgin Tanrıkulu, deputy leader of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), asked in a parliamentary question to Davutoğlu regarding the connections of Ramazova, who killed a policeman and wounded several others in an attack on a police station in Istanbul on Jan. 6.
Tanrıkulu asked whether Ramazova entered Turkey from Syria at least twice in the last six months, while also inquiring as to which border gates and on what dates she made entries into Turkey.
The deputy CHP leader also sought answers over the type of visa issued to Ramazova, which Turkish consulate issued her visa and how many times she had entered the country in the last five years.
He also asked whether Ramazova and her husband, Ebu Edlbiyev, were the subject of a red notice by Interpol.
