Abstract

Σύμφωνα με το θύμα, Αχμέτ Σατίν, ο οποίος ήταν ο υπεύθυνος του τουρκικού γραφείου της ΠΕΟ, οι δράστες ήταν Τούρκοι νεαροί. Αυτοί βρίσκονταν τις τελευταίες μέρες γύρω από το σπίτι του Σατίν. Όταν ο Σατίν τους ρώτησε τί ήθελαν, αυτοί απάντησαν ότι η συνεισφορά στην ειρηνική συνύπαρξη των δύο κοινοτήτων κάνει κακό στην υπόθεση των Τούρκων. Μετά από φωνές της συζύγου οι άγνωστοι έφυγαν. Το επόμενο πρωί όμως, δύο άγνωστοι άνοιξαν πυρ εναντίον τους. Σύμφωνα με το επίσημο ανακοινωθέν, τα κίνητρα είναι πολιτικά. Ο Σατίν πυροβολήθηκε από Τούρκους επειδή ήταν κομμουνιστής.
According to the victim, Ahmet Satin, who was the person in charge of the Turkish section of PEO, the offenders were Turkish youngsters. The past few days the youngsters were watching the house where Satin lived. When the latter asked them what they want, they replied that his contribution to the peaceful co-existence between the two communities is not beneficiary for the Turkish cause. After his wife started shouting the offenders left. The next morning though, when Satin and his wife were going to their work, they were shot by strangers. Based on the official announcement the motives were political. Satin was shot by Turks because he was a communist.
