ANKARA - Turkish Daily News
Another charge has been filed by Kayseri Bar Association attorney Orhan Pekmezci against internationally renowned Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk for statements he reportedly made during an interview with the Swiss daily Tagesanzeiger, published in the newspaper's Feb. 6 issue, reported Anatolia news agency.
³Pamuk has made groundless claims against the Turkish identity, the Turkish military and Turkey as a whole. I think he should be punished for violating Article 159 and 312 of the Turkish Penal Code,² said Pekmezci after filing charges at the Kayseri State Prosecutor's office. ³He made a statement provoking the people to hatred and animosity through the media, which is defined as a crime in Article 312.²
Pekmezci claimed that Pamuk said, ³30,000 Kurds and 1 million Armenians were killed in Turkey. Almost no one dares to speak out this but me, and the nationalists hate me for that.²
Pamuk the author of six novels and the recipient of major Turkish and international literary awards, has had his work translated into more than 20 languages. His most recent novel is ³My Name Is Red.² Pamuk's latest novel, "Kar," (Snow), translated by Maureen Freely, has been included in The New York Times' "100 Notable Books of the Year" list prepared by the daily's "Book Review" section. The review, published every Sunday, has selected 100 notable books from all those it has reviewed since Dec. 7, 2003.
Previously Mehmet Üçok an attorney from the Anatolia Professional Association of Owners of Scientific and Literary Works (ANASAM) filed charges against Pamuk at the Kayseri Public Prosecutor's office.
According to a report International Radio France (February 23) in live of Ankara, the famous writer Orhan Pamuck, created the scandal in Turkey. Treated of traitor to one's homeland, it would have left the country after the death threats of the extremist-nationalist ones.
