The Hrant Dink Foundation in Turkey has issued a statement that it has received death threats via e-mail.
The statement said that in a letter full of threats, it was demanded to leave Turkey, and the late Hrant Dink's widow, Rakel Dink, and his lawyer were threatened with death.
Hrant Dink, the founder and chief editor of Agos Armenian weekly of Istanbul, was gunned down on January 19, 2007 outside the then office of Agos.
In 2011, the perpetrator, Ogun Samast, was sentenced by a juvenile court to 22 years and ten months for the murder.
After long court proceedings and appeals, however, a new probe was ultimately launched into this murder case, and regarding numerous former and serving senior Turkish officials’ complicity in this assassination.
