Our struggle for justice continues from Lawyer Fuat Erdoğan to Ebru Timtik

ÇHD Istanbul Branch, commemorated its colleague Atty. Fuat Erdogan on the 27th anniversary of his murder.

The Istanbul Branch of the Contemporary Lawyers Association (ÇHD), held an event to commorate its colleage, Lawyer Fuat Erdogan on the 27th anniversary of his murder

Left carnations were layed down in front of Beşiktaş Arzum Cafe, the place where Erdoğan was murdered.

"THEY ARE GUIDES IN OUR STRUGGLE FOR JUSTICE"

Speaking at the commemoration event, lawyer Seda Şaraldı said, "Our two members, Fuat Erdoğan and Ebru Timtik, who were murdered by fascism, are two guides in our struggle for justice."
"Att. Fuat Erdoğan was killed by being shot in the neck at Arzum Cafe, which is located at this point 27 years ago. Mechanical Engineer İsmet Erdoğan and BEM-SEN Chairman Elmas Yalçın were also killed with the same lie of conflict. The tortured political branch police who murdered them were put on show trial and acquitted."

"FUAT ERDOĞAN IS ONE OF THE FIRST EXAMPLES SHOWING THAT REVOLUTIONARY LAWYERSHIP IS DONE AT PRICES"

"Fuat Erdoğan is one of the first examples showing that revolutionary advocacy comes at a price."

"Fuat Erdoğan had been involved in the struggle for justice since his university years and had been tortured. He took his place as the lawyer of those who were murdered in the extrajudicial executions of the 90s. Those who murdered him knew Fuat Erdoğan from the execution files in which they were tried as defendants. Fuat Erdoğan is one of the first examples showing that revolutionary attorneyship has a price."

EBRU TİMTİK WAS REMEMBERED AS WELL

"Today, we leave our carnations here at Ebru's place. 26 years later, Lawyer Ebru Timtik and Lawyer Aytaç ÜNSAL did not accept the prosecution of our profession, and the hasty trials made with secret witnesses and non-existent evidence, and resisted on death fast. We lost one of our department's heads, lawyer Ebru Timtik after 238 days.

"SHE WOULD ATTENDED THE MEMORIAL WHICH WAS HELD EVERY YEAR"

"Ebru Timtik would attend the statements made for Fuat Erdoğan every year, would leave her carnations here. Ebru always remembered Fuat Erdoğan's place in struggle practice with respect and affectionately explained about him: One of the memories she told about him was that during an arrest, it attracted the attention of the police when the ÇHD badge on the lapel of his jacket fell to the ground and he immediately took it and put it back on; and that although they were constantly trying to drop the badge, Fuat Erdoğan took our association's badge under torture and put it on his jacket with the same care."

After the commemoration speech, carnations were left at the place where lawyer Fuat Erdogan was murdered. Att. Fuat Erdoğan, along with Mechanical Engineer İsmet Erdoğan and BEM-SEN Chairman Elmas Yalçın, had been murdered by the police of the Political Branch in Beşiktaş Arzum Cafe on 28.09.1994.
