Hrant Dink's son goes to prison under article 301

PanARMENIAN.Net - Istanbul Sisli court has sentenced the editor of Agos Turkish-Armenian newspaper, Arat Dink, and publisher Sargis Seropian to a year in prison. Arat Dink and Sargis Seropian stood trial under article 301 for "insulting Turkishness."

Taking into account that Dink and Seropian are convicted for first time, the court postponed execution of the verdict, Turkish media reports.

Arat Dink and Sargis Seropian were accused for a re-publication of Hrant Dink's interview where called to recognize the Armenian Genocide. "It's absurd and dangerous that definition of a historical fact as Genocide is perceived as insulting Turkishness," Hrant Dink said at his first trial in June 2007.

Hrant Dink was gunned down outside his newspaper premises in Istanbul on January 19, 2007 by Ogun Samast, 17.
