Investigation of Çorlu Train Accident Defendant's Hearing from HSK


In the lawsuit filed against the train accident that took place in Çorlu and is still ongoing, the statement of the suspect Ç.Y was taken at the 20th Criminal Court of First Instance in Küçükçekmece. The lawyers of the families of the victims, who stated that the statement was taken using the e-signature without the head of the court, filed a criminal complaint against the judge and the clerk officer. While the prosecution decided that there was no room for prosecution in terms of the clerk officer, the Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSK) launched an investigation against the judge and the officer.

According to the news of Serkan Alan from Newspaper Wall; ” In the lawsuit filed against the train disaster in Tekirdağ's Çorlu district, where 25 people died and over 300 people were injured, 4 defendants are being tried without arrest by the Çorlu 1st Assize Court.

On 12 July 2019, the Chief of Bridges, Ç. Y, went to the 20th Criminal Court of First Instance at Küçükçekmece Courthouse on XNUMX July XNUMX. The lawyers of relatives of those who died in the accident were also present in front of the courtroom for the statement of the accused.

As the trial did not start on the hour, victim lawyers Mürsel Ünder and Şerif Aras Doğruel went to the court's pen to ask for the outcome of the order hearing, where they would also ask the accused about the accident. Victim lawyers filed a criminal complaint about the judge and the court clerk, who learned that there was no hearing in the courtroom and that the defendant's statement had been taken by the officers without the court judge in the court's pen.


The prosecutor's office decided that the lawyers made a criminal complaint with the allegations of “misconduct” and “forgery in the official document” by stating that the statement of Ç.Y, one of the accused of the train accident, was taken by the court clerk using the judge's e-signature.

The Küçükçekmece Chief Public Prosecutor's Office decided that there was no room for prosecution for the suspect clerk, and stated the following: “As a result of the investigation, the statement of the suspect, the report regarding the absence of the camera footage of the scene of the incident, was taken into consideration when the instruction hearing report was signed by the judge and the prosecutor with a wet signature. It was decided that there was no room for prosecution on behalf of the public because it was understood that there was not enough evidence to raise public suspicion about the suspect indicating that the crimes were committed. ”


The 20th Criminal Court of First Instance, which the lawyers of the victims complain about, has not made a decision yet, but the prosecution sent the file to the Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSK). HSK, which started an investigation against the judge and the clerk, called on the lawyers who made the complaint to testify in the capacity of the client. It was learned that the lawyers will testify about the judge and clerk officer they complained during the week.


Mürsel Ünder, who complained about the lawyers of the Çorlu families, who stated that the hearing was "shown as if it had been held", reminded that no officer had been punished for nearly 2 years after the accident and said:
“Çorlu train massacre stands in a very exemplary place. The process shows that the impunity policy and this impunity policy are maintained in a consensus by all elements of the judiciary. Not only at the trial where 4 defendants were tried, we are faced with a policy of impunity almost everywhere we apply for the Çorlu train massacre. We see that these are mobbing movements for families. Families are running their determined struggles, and we, as their lawyers, stand by them in the struggle for their rights. But we always face walls about impunity. We will continue this struggle to the end, and the struggle for justice will continue until the real ones are punished. ”
