President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Hadi Al-Bahra, and Vice-president, Abdel Majeed Barakat, made a phone call to the family of the late Ahmed Madrati, a Syrian young man who was murdered in the Turkish city of Adana last week, in an incident planned and executed by a group of criminals.
During the call, Al-Bahra conveyed his deepest condolences on behalf of himself and all SOC members to the Madrati family. They discussed the latest developments in the ongoing investigations led by Turkish authorities to apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice. It was reported that one of the accused has already been arrested and detained.
Al-Bahra and the deceased’s family reached an agreement to appoint a specialized lawyer in criminal cases to closely monitor the proceedings and developments of the case, ensuring that those responsible are held accountable according to the law.
Al-Bahra emphasized that the SOC has engaged with relevant Turkish authorities, who have taken proactive measures against hate speech, incitement against refugees, and racial discrimination. These actions underline their commitment to upholding the rule of law, ensuring the independence of the judiciary, and prosecuting those who commit crimes.
Furthermore, Al-Bahra noted that the SOC’s efforts will continue to develop a legal framework capable of swiftly assisting Syrian refugees, offering advisory and legal representation services to those subjected to attacks or crimes due to hate speech, discrimination, or racism.
