A book entitled "The Hrant Dink Murder – The Media, Judiciary, State"
was published last week in Turkey. Author Kemal Goktaº is a judiciary
reporter with the Turkish daily Vatan.
The book delves into the bigger picture behind the assassination
of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in front of his office in
Istanbul in 2007. Goktaº explores the role of the media in turning
Dink into a target and how the state and judiciary also played their
part in the incident leading to Dink’s murder
Goktaº was among ten Turkish journalists that traveled to Armenia last
week in a joint venture by the International Hrant Dink Foundation
and the Heinrich Boll Foundation. "I went to Armenia for the first
time. It was a very impressive trip. The Armenians are experiencing
a trauma and mourning passed on from generation to generation. Most
of the people I’ve met had their roots in Anatolia; they were very
friendly to us," Goktaº said.
