University student Ali Ismail Korkmaz (19), a Gezi Resistance protestor who was severely battened by a group of casually-dressed people on June 3 while running away from police intervention, died in a hospital in the central province of Eskişehir this early morning. Korkmaz was unresponsive since his surgery on June 4.
While attackers have yet to be identified, the ongoing prosecutor investigation is resuming with no probable suspects. It was reported that two of three surveillance cameras nearby the crime scene had no recordings and the only remaining camera recordings turned out to be “damaged”.
“We highly feel a suspicion that crime evidences are being obscured,” Gürkan Korkmaz,Ali Ismail Korkmaz’s older brother, told bianet.
Ali İsmail Korkmaz, a freshman in English teaching at Anadolu University, attended Gezi Resistance demonstrations in the central province of Eskişehir on June 3.
He was battened by a group of casually-dressed people, as he was running away from a police intervention with gas bombs.
Arriving at Yunus Emre Public Hospital, Korkmaz allegedly was not admitted by officials who told him to testify to police headquarters initially.
Similarly, officials refused to admit him the next morning. Korkmaz struggled to find a police station to testify with his situation worsening.
Finally he was admitted to Eskişehir Public Hospital and diagnosed with “brain hemorrhage”. He was later on transferred to Osmangazi Medical School Hospital.
Operated, Korkmaz was unresponsive since June 4. His family filed complaints against Yunus Emre Public Hospital with a prosecutor launching an investigation on the case. (BK/BM)
