AFP photoThe Ankara Chief Prosecutor’s Office in charge of investigating the Oct. 10 double suicide bombing, which has so far killed 102 people, has focused on foreign intelligence services’ possible role in the attack.
Accordingly, the prosecutor’s office has sent a letter to the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) and asked for the investigation of foreign intelligence involvement, taking the scope of the attack into consideration.
The officials also have also identified the suspect who ordered and arranged the attack. The suspect is believed to be inside Turkish territories. Meanwhile, some of the nine suspects with arrest warrants in absentia have already transited to Syria, while some of them are believed to be in Turkey.
Meanwhile the Prosecutor’s Office also wants to review the file on the July 20 Suruç suicide bomb attack that killed 34 people and wounded more than 100. The office has already announced that one of the two suicide bombers in the Oct. 10 Ankara Massacre was Yunus Emre Alagöz, the brother of Şeyh Abdurrahman Alagöz, the perpetrator in the Suruç suicide bomb attack.
The Ankara Chief Prosecutor’s Office contacted the Adıyaman Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office and exchanged information as the latter had at the time of the Suruç bombing issued an arrest warrant for Yunus Emre Alagöz.
Elsewhere, Ömer Faruk Eminağaoğlu, the former president of the Judges and Prosecutors Union (YARSAV), filed a complaint about various officials including Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu and MİT Undersecretary Hakan Fidan on charges of “felonious homicide due to failure or negligence” in relation with the Ankara massacre.
