9th prosecutor takes over the Şenyaşar Family massacre case

A 9th prosecutor has taken over the case concerning the murder of Şenyaşar Family members.

The prosecutor of the investigation, which has been continuing for 3 years and 5 months under a "confidentiality" order concerning the murder of Hacı Esvet Şenyaşar and his sons Adil and Celal, at Suruç State Hospital on 14 June 2018 by the bodyguards and relatives of AKP deputy İbrahim Halil Yıldız, has been changed for the 9th time. The attack by the bodyguards and relatives of AKP deputy İbrahim Halil Yıldız started at the workplace of the Şenyaşar Family, and Adil and Celal Şenyaşar brothers who were seriously injured during the attack and father Hacı Esvet Şenyaşar who came to the hospital were all murdered at the Suruç State Hospital.

While the investigation was divided into two separate cases as the workplace case and hospital case, Fadıl Şenyaşar was sentenced to 37 years and 9 months while Enver Yıldız was sentenced to 18 years in prison in the final hearing of the lawsuit concerning the incidents on April 2 in Malatya province.

Ferit Şenyaşar, who went to the courthouse to request revisions in the file, was informed that the prosecutor had been changed for the 9th time. Previously, the 7th prosecutor was dismissed shortly after he revealed to the family that he had identified 23 people concerning the attack at the hospital. Prosecutor Mehmet Alpaydın who took over the case 3 months ago spent 45 days on leave.
