DHA photoThe ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) Deputy Parliamentary Group Chair Nurettin Canikli has accused the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu over the death of Burak Can Karamanoğlu, who was killed in Istanbul on March 13.
Speaking at a press conference for the AKP’s election campaign in the Black Sea town of Giresun, Canikli stressed that Karamanoğlu was the nephew of Asım Kaymakçı, the AKP’s mayoral candidate in the town of Alucra. “Our brother, this son of our homeland, has been murdered by the illegal soldiers of Kılıçdaroğlu. It has torn out our hearts,” Caniklioğlu said.
He labeled those who are responsible for the killing “vandals” affiliated with “illegal organizations.” Alleging that the main opposition leader “is always behind these organizations that terrorize the streets,” Caniklioğlu also claimed that the CHP deputies “support criminals.”
