ANKARA: A Turkish court has freed five men accused
of torturing and murdering three Christian missionaries in 2007, after
the suspects' time in detention while on trial exceeded new legal
limits, local media said Saturday.
The men walked free from their high-security prison in the eastern city of Malatya on Friday, according to Dogan news agency.
German missionary Tilmann Geske and Turkish converts Necati Aydin and
Ugur Yuksel had their throats slit in April 2007 after being tied up
and interrogated about missionary activities.
The three victims were members of the tiny Protestant community in the conservative city.
The trial of the five men accused of the attack is still going on seven years later.
Under a new law passed by the Turkish parliament last month, the
detention limit for suspects on trial who have not yet been convicted
was lowered to five years, paving the way for the five accused to be
released on bail.
