Ankara, Turkey (nsnbc) – A Turkish government official told the press that Turkey could block the Google search engine in Turkey over the publication of images showing the hostage-taking of a prosecutor in an Istanbul courthouse that ended in the death of the two alleged DHKP-C hostage takes as well as the death of prosecutor Mehmet Selim Kiraz. The left-wing DHKP-C is widely regarded as either infiltrated or controlled by Turkish intelligence and as part of NATO’s Gladio program.
The Turkish government spokesperson told the daily newspaper Hürriyet on April 7, that the Turkish government demands that Google removes images showing prosecutor Kiraz and his two hostage takes as well as videos on Youtube showing the alleged DHKP-C terrorists entering the secured courthouse. The Turkish government considers the dissemination of these images as “illegal”.

The 1st Criminal Court of Peace in Istanbul notified Turkey’s Internet Service Providers Union (ESB) about the order to block access to sites with these images on late April 6, reports Aydinlik Daily.

The two perpetrators and alleged members of the outlawed Turkish far-left Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C) reportedly took the prosecutor hostage in revenge of the death of Gezi Park protester Berkin Elvan who was injured during a police crackdown in 2013 and succumbed to his injuries in 2014.
Prosecutor Mehmet Selim Kiraz died from a head-shot would from a French 7,65 mm. One of the two hostage takers reportedly shot Kiraz in the head with the pistol at close range.

Kiraz died after being removed from the Caglayan courthouse to the hospital where a one-hour-long attempt to save his life failed.

Turkish analysts would ask the immediate question how the two alleged DKKP-C members succeeded at entering the secured courthouse. Leaked CCTV images would show that the two entered the highly-secured courthouse via two different entrances. One of them was carrying a robe while the other one carried a briefcase.

The two met in the courthouse cafeteria before moving on to the prosecutor’s office. Security at the courthouse is comparable with security at Turkish airports. How it was possible to smuggle a gun into the courthouse is one of many questions that remain unanswered at this time.

It is noteworthy that the hostage crisis came as Turkey’s left-wing Patriotic Party is gaining mass momentum and drastically increased its membership.

Last month a party delegation led by Dr. Dogu Perincek visited Damascus for talks with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and other top-Syrian government officials and leading members of civil society.

Among the Patriotic Party leadership is the retired former Chief of Turkey’s military intelligence service General Hakki Pekin.

The former military intelligence chief is, arguably, among those Turkish members of civic society who are most well-informed about the cooperation between Turkey’s intelligence service MIT, NATO and NATO’s Gladio network in Turkey.

Pekin has, at numerous occasions, noted that Turkey’s AKP government as well as the Gülen networkcooperate closely with NATO’s Gladio network. Leading Turkish analysts repeatedly stressed the ties between NATO’s Gladio network, Turkey’s MIT and the DHKP-C.

Police reported that they stormed the prosecutor’s office after shots were here from inside the courthouse. Several witnesses, however, would stress that they heard an explosion before they heard gunfire. Arguably, police blasted their way into the office – either before or after shots were fired.

Further investigations may, or may not bring the exact details of the “hostage crisis” and the botched attempt to free Kiraz to light. Until then, the questions why the DHKP-C, which has known ties to the MIT and NATO’s Gladio network would take it upon itself to “revenge the death of Berkin Elvan on behalf of Turkey’s left” remains unanswered,; That is, even a verifiable statement by the DHKP-C itself.

Aldo Moro BRThe incident brings to mind the 1978 assassination of Italian PM Aldo Moro by a Brigade Rosse cell that had been infiltrated by NATO’s Gladio network or one that posed as a Brigade Rosse cell.

Moro was considering the formation of an Italian coalition government that would include Italy’s Communist Party. The U.S. American historian Dr. Webster G. Tarpley would investigate and document the involvement of NATO’s Gladio network as consultant for the Italian government.

The AKP government’s attempt to block websites with images and video showing details of the hostage situation is, arguably, an attempt to predominantly censor independent investigative journalism and media who are asking“uncomfortable questions” as well as media who continue to pursue other angles than the “the radical left revenged the death of a protester who was injured during the illegal, 2013 Gezi Park protests” angle that is being touted by Turkey’s AKP regime.
