HEC PRESS RELEASE

---------------------------

Hellenic Electronic Center (HEC)

A Non-Profit Organization Registered in the US
Representing 35,000 Hellenes and
34 Hellenic associations in the US and abroad

January 21, 2007

 

The Executive Council of the Hellenic Electronic Center (HEC) wish to extend their sympathies and support toward our grieving Armenian brothers and sisters following the brutal and unprovoked murder of Hrant Dink by a Turkish extremist in Constantinople. We wish to express our admiration and respect to the bravery of Mr. Dink who fought for justice and historical truth in advocating for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide. His example will serve as an inspiration to writers who use words as their weapon against the brutality and terror which are the characteristics of authoritarian governments such as those like Turkey.

Mr. Dink was the victim of the terrorism that is rampant in Turkey, that is both tolerated and supported by the Turkish authorities. The hatred of the Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek minorities in Turkey up to the present day is a reality demonstrated by Ankara's Genocide denials. The tragic and horrible murder of Mr. Dink by a fanatical extremist has as its origins the Genocide denial that is the official stance of the Turkish government.
We extend our condolences to the family of Mr. Dink, and more than ever we are greatly concerned for the remaining members of the Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek communities inside Turkey.
HEC Executive Council
