THE PERPETRATOR IS KNOWN
Journalist Hrant Dink was remembered by thousands at the place he was shot on the tenth anniversary of his murder. Dink’s wife Rakel Dink said, ‘Come on, let us stop living like scared pigeons in this country.’ Dink, addressing those present at the ceremony, ‘The perpetrator of this murder would appear to be the state at all its levels. If not, then that state must separate the wheat from the chaff in its midst.’
A REVERED PERSON
Yesterday, once again, we looked with fresh eyes at the pavements on which Hrant Dink walked for the last time. But, at the same time, these were the pavements on which those who aimed to kill him also walked. Rakel Dink said, ‘Footage from the scene is still coming into the open. They say there were more gendarmerie than citizens here at this time ten years ago. We are waiting. When will this investigation that has been going on for years come to an end?’
RIDDLE REMAINS OVER THE MURDER
Who shot Hrant Dink?
We surveyed citizens on the streets of Istanbul, asking, ‘Who committed the Dink Murder?’ Even if the gunman in the murder is known, the supposed identity of those who gave the order to kill has shifted from a group of youths with ‘nationalist sensitivities’ including Pelitli to the ‘Ergenekonists’ and then to the ‘FETOists’.

You Hrant Dink, a former amateur footballer, were killed in a country ruled by a former amateur footballer, shot in the back by a former amateur footballer. Then you died once more in each hate crime. And we, the sporting world, did the dagger in your back proud.
