Hrant Dink’s murderer sentenced, many feel disappointed…

Ogün Samast, the murderer of Hrant Dink is sentenced to 22 years today. He will actually be in prison for 10-12 years. Many friends of Hrant are disappointed with this result. However, I was expecting even less than that since Samast was sent to juvenile court during the long trial process. And what is more important is the fact that not the hitman himself but those behind him should be sentenced. So far, authorities see him as a lone figure in the murder and this really is frustrating. We witness a grand coverup here…
