Dink’s imprisoned killer writes book on his crime

12:10, 19.03.2012 Region: Armenia, Diaspora, Turkey Theme: Society, Incidents

ISTANBUL. – Ogun Samast, the murderer of Hrant Dink—the founder and former chief editor of Istanbul’s Agos Armenian bilingual weekly, who was gunned down in 2007 in front of his office building—, sent a 25-page letter from prison to the Taraf daily of Turkey, and informed that he is writing a book about the dark pages of the murder.

Samast noted that the book will present the developments with respect to Dink’s killing, and stressed that he is planning on publishing this book in 4-5 months.    

“Where are those people who put me on this ship and took advantage of my lack of knowledge, and as a result I committed a crime? I told you first that three months prior to the murder I met with someone who plays a part in organizing Dink’s killing. I will write about him in the book,” Samast wrote to Taraf daily, and added that he has 21-percent guilt in Hrant Dink’s murder, but he is paying for the 100 percent.
