Malatya massacre victim's widow wants case merged with Cage plan

The widow of German national Tilman Geske, who was brutally killed along with two colleagues at a Christian publishing house in Malatya in 2007 at the hands of young ultranationalists, believes that her husband's murder was part of a greater plan to provoke chaos in society and increase pressure on the government and is asking for the Malatya case to be merged with the Cage Operation Action Plan case.

Cage is a suspected Naval Forces Command plan that was exposed in 2009 in which prominent non-Muslim figures in Turkey were to be assassinated with the aim of fomenting chaos in society and leading to a coup d'état against the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government. “I want the Zirve Publishing House killings to be merged with the case into the Cage Operation Action Plan. I do not believe that those young men could have carried out the murders on their own. Some de facto links [between the killings and Cage plan] are evident. There are other influences behind these murders,” Suzanna Geske told Today's Zaman.
