Journalist Ahmet Şık drops new 'bomb'
06 July 2012In the book Şık shows how evidence to frame him was created ad hoc
Journalist Ahmet Şık’s new book ‘Ambush/New Owners of the Government’ writes about Fethullah Gülen movement’s blacklist records in police organization and an expert’s acknowledging the fabrication of a document in Odatv case.
Journalist Şık was arrested and accused of being part of the so-called Ergenekon plot, in which an alleged clandestine ultra-nationalist organization with ties to military and security forces is said to have plotted to use terrorism to overthrow the government.
In his book ‘The Imam's Army’ which was confiscated before its publication, Şık wrote about how the Gülen movement was organized in the Turkish state after the 12 September coup, how it took control of the police organization, how it eliminated deprecators with conspiracies and how they created evidences behind closed doors. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had compared Şık's book originally entitled "The Imam's Army" to a bomb.
The 358 paged new book, which was published by Postacı Books and introduced by journalist and author Umur Talu, consists of documents presenting details about a large number of police officers who were blacklisted while serving for the Action Force Police Department of Ankara. The blacklist documents in the book show that blacklisted police officers are assigned a grade between 1 and 5 in connection with their relation with the movement. The book also consists of illegal practices in Odatv case, the examination of the news the court presented as evidence and writings by many journalists.
Journalist Şık also presents in his book an important detail about himself and proves his argument with an expert opinion. Şık writes that a document which was put forward as the basis of accusation against him was created short - around 103 minutes - before the police raid targeting him.
‘Ambush/New Owners of the Government’ also consists of a very important document about former MIT (National Intelligence Organization) official Kaşif Kozinoğlu who suffered an alleged heart attack in Silivri prison on 12 Nov 2011, ten days before his first trial in court. Şık says that this document which has been kept hidden and not manifested in Oda Tv case will leave investigating authorities in a difficult situation.
