TURKEY Wants to eliminate Baybasin
Authorities in Turkey have attempted to assassinate Mr Baybasin twice in both times he was lucky to escape alive. The first assassination attempt was tried in the beginning of 1997 and second one was in September 1997 in the Netherlands. He knew they would keep trying to succeed so Mr Baybasin left to the Netherlands were the Dutch authorities were convinced beyond shadow of doubt that his life was in danger in Turkey and granted him political asylum. How ever, Turkish authorities did not give up. In Istanbul, a Turkish policeman informed one of Baybasin relative, that the Turkish state would send their policeman to assassinate Baybasin who was running a business in the Netherlands at the time. Finally Mr Baybasin observed some unusual activities around him by a group that was supported by Turkish nationalists in the Netherlands. Mehmet Marsil, who had spent a long period in the Netherlands, got in touch with Mr Baybasin in 1997. On the telephone, Marsil identified himself to Baybasin as a needy Kurdish man requesting a job. Some time later one of Baybasin bodygaurds asked Marsil for his passport, Marsil was then proven to be a Turkish policeman, who entered the Netherlands with a diplomatic passport. Mr Baybasin immediately informed the Dutch authorities in Rotterdam, but to everyones surprise no action was taken. The Turkish Embassy in Rotterdam privately sent Marsil back to Turkey , soon after Marsil arrived in Turkey he changed his statement to complained that Baybasin attempted to kill him. THIS SHOCKING NEWS WAS ON DUTCH MEDIA FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME , IT CAN ALSO BE QUOTED FROM THEIR TV PROGRAMS AND NEWSPAPERS. Dutch got in touch with Mr Baybasin former lawyer, Mr Victor Koppe. He state the person who has informed us is a trusted and science man who is very well informed about the Turkish people. A diplomatic passport holder, Mustafa Sahin from turkey was sent on 14th of August 1997, by its government to the Netherlands to assassinate my client. The incident was on Dutch press for a long period, Dutch government is aware of this attack through to media. Question for Dutch authorities? Why was Mehmet Marsil given back to Turkey? if Mr Baybasin wanted to murder Marsil, then why did he hand him to the Dutch Police Station?
