TURKISH court released two village guards who opened fire on a demonstration in Bulanik district of Mus in December last year and killed two Kurdish demonstrators. The lawyers of the victims stated that the decision is a clear violation of law and they will resort further legal remedies to challenge the ruling.
Volunteer village guards Turan Bilen and his brother Metin Bilen opened fire on a demonstration held on 15 December 2009 against the ruling from the constitutional court that banned pro-Kurdish Democratic Society Party (DTP). While 2 demonstrators were killed in the fire ten others were injured.
