Turkey: trials in connection with the murders of two trans women now under way

July 9, 2009

Turkish flagIn April, I wrote (link here) about Melek K, a trans rights activist, who was stabbed to death in her own home in Ankara, Turkey.

And in May, I wrote (link here) about Çağla, who was also stabbed to death in her own home in Ankara, Turkey.

I’ve been unable to find much information about either of these murders, although I see from the Kaos GL website (link here; Google translation here) that murder trials are now under way in both cases.

The trial of Çağla’s murderer was scheduled for yesterday (July 8), and the trial of Melek’s murderer is due to take place today (July 9).

I’m trying to find further details of both cases, and hope to post an update later.
