Members of ''Platform of Still Witnesses'', who have pursued justice during the unjust trial of Pınar Selek for 12 years, made a press conference on March 4th, 2010 in Istanbul. Their decleration is as follows:
Feminist sociologist , peace activist and writer Pınar Selek, was watching tv in prison where she was kept as a result of a conspiracy and due to a research she has conducted, when all of a sudden she heard the annoucement at the evening news that she was being accused of the explosion at Spice Bazaar that had happened one and a half months ago. There for the first time, she became aware of the horrifying truth that she was tried to be pushed into a greater plot tahn she could ever imagine. We all share this horror with her for about twelve years.
Pınar Selek was acquitted of this “case of conspiracy” twice in 2006 and 2008. Still, the acquittal was unjustly reversed by the Criminal Department number 9 of the Supreme Court in March 2009 and life sentence in solitary confinement and with no possiblity of parole was demanded. The objection of the Supreme Court’s Head Prosecution Office against the decision of Criminal Department number 9 was also rejected with a majority of votes in the Supreme Court Criminal General Assembly in February 2010.
