Promoting Conflict  the Şemdinli Bombing. Trial Observation Report
Details for Promoting Conflict the Şemdinli Bombing. Trial Observation Report
NamePromoting Conflict the Şemdinli Bombing. Trial Observation Report

In April 2006, KHRP Legal Team member, Ajanta Kaza, travelled to Turkey to observe the trial of two of three men accused involvement in the bombing of a bookshop in the town of Semdinli in the province of Hakkari.

The incident sent shock waves throughout Turkey and internationally because the three individuals accused of planting the explosive devices – together with incriminating material – were apprehended by a crowd of civilians at the scene. Two of the men were non-commissioned army officers, raising the spectre of ‘deep state' involvement in the attacks. The report expresses concern that no investigation was conducted of higher level official involvement and at the high degree of political involvement in the Semdinli incident by the government, state officials and senior military personnel.
