Decision on Killing Hrant Dink was Made by 'The State Within The State'

PanARMENIAN.Net - Organization 'Grey Wolves' can be involved in Hrant Dink's assassination, told specialist in Turkic philology Ruben Safrastyan, director of the Institute of Oriental Studies of Armenian NAS (National Academy of Sciences) the PanARMRNIAN.Net journalist. In his words, 'Grey Wolves' can be only performers of the crime, and the customers should be looked for in higher echelons of power, which tries to keep the model founded by Kemal Atatürk. The 'state within the state' consists of leaders of political parties, representatives of big business, army, and intellectuals. This is a portion of Turkish society, which by all means tries to enclose the country from Islamists at the head of Prime Minister Erdoghan," Safrastyan stressed.



Alongside the specialist in Turkic philology did not exclude a possible attack on Nobel Prize winner and writer Orhan Pamuk, who has also spoken about the Armenian Genocide. It is worth mentioning that the PanARMENIAN.Net journalist's all efforts to contact Pamuk were useless. In Safrastyan's opinion, most probably Pamuk has already departed from Turkey.
