First of all, we would like to express our gratitude to everyone for their support to Osman Kavala so far. However, we think that it is not quite appropriate to make rush evaluations at this point because the case is still at the investigation stage. Our opinion is that there is a misunderstanding about Osman Kavala. Moreover, we believe that the investigative and judicial authorities will correct this error expeditiously. We bring this to the public attention.
