Mısra Öz, who lost her son Oğuz Arda Sel in the Çorlu Train Massacre, made statements to the soL before the hearing to be held today. Öz said, “Despite the two big years passed, we can say that the case is just beginning. We are still waiting for the expert committee and the discovery. Late justice is not justice. "We lived for a year or two where the responsible people were not prosecuted and they were promoted.
On July 8, 2018, the trial of the "train accident", in which 25 people died and over 300 people were injured, in the Çorlu district of Tekirdağ, will restart today.
We talked to Misra Öz, who lost her son Oğuz Arda Sel during the massacre before the trial.
'We are at the starting point ...'
Stating that they have faced problems such as steps not taken from the beginning, difficulties experienced in expert appointments, indictments that have not been formed in some way, Öz said, “It has been almost two years since, but this husband has not been able to make any progress despite two years. This fifth hearing, while we are going to this hearing, is at the beginning of the road, we can say that the case is just beginning. ”
'Two years have passed since the massacre, still no exploration ...'
Öz stated that they are still waiting for the expert committee to be formed and that they will learn whether this committee was formed at the hearing. “Two years have passed since the massacre. We do not know what they will discover or what they will do after two years. In short, the case was a very long start-up process, ”he said.
'Late justice is not justice'
Öz stated that they demand real prosecution, that they struggle in their name and that they continue their struggle as families and lawyers, “Late justice is justice value. We demand a fair and effective litigation process to be implemented as soon as possible. ”
'Responsible are also rewarded'
Emphasizing that they are still at the starting point despite the two-year process, it is both very tiring and very sad for them. The person who should be the accused is heard as a witness in the case. Questions are given before. This name is also being rewarded. At the time of the massacre, Mümin Karasu, who was the Deputy Service Manager at the TCDD 1st Regional Directorate Railway Maintenance Service Directorate, was appointed as the TCDD General Manager Consultant.
'In order not to experience these massacres again ...'
Öz stated that if this distorted order continues, hundreds of massacres will be witnessed. They said that they will fight for the trials of those massacres not to happen again, and that they expect the fair trial as soon as possible without further distraction.
