“We proved thanks to Prosecutor Kiraz that the bullet took my eye belonged to the police guns. We made the most progress in the case while Kiraz was in office.” he stated.
In the case of Berkin Elvan who was murdered by the police with a tear gas canister, Kiraz had come to the point of identifying the three police officers who were on duty at the time.
