The Turkish government intentionally hides the evidence of the Armenian Genocide even today, historian Tanar Akcam said in an interview with Al Arabiya.
According to him, the government is hiding telegrams with information about the genocide. They are aware of these testimonies, since the documents were used during the military tribunal in Istanbul in 1919.
“In these military tribunals, public prosecutors wrote an indictment and verdicts … they quoted from these telegrams,” he said in a video interview.
Akcam noted that he found documents in private archives. The historian added that civil activists in Turkey are fighting for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide as part of their efforts to fight for democracy and human rights.
