MIT officers’ confessions about Paris Massacre

Top two officials who were captured by HPG confessed that Paris Massacre was planned by the Turkish intelligence agency with approval from the highest authority.

KCK released the confessions of two top MIT officials who were captured by HPG in Southern Kurdistan as they were preparing assassinations against KCK leaders.

On the anniversary of Paris Massacre, KCK released the confessions of Erhan Pekcetin and Aydın Gunel, about the killings.

Both said that the massacre was planned by Turkish intelligence agency and was approved by the highest authority in Turkey.

One of the captured MIT official Erhan Pekcetin said: “There are audio recordings that were leaked to the internet. When I first head them I understood that the assassination was planned and executed by Ugur Kaan Ayik, our head of Ethnic Separatist Activities department; Oguz Yuret, a director of branch office; agent Ayhan Oran and other three personnel of us. Because I recognized them from the audio recordings”.

“They met with an informer named Omer Guney in a hotel in Ankara. The audio recordings are taken from the hotel”.

“This kind of assassinations are critical. It requires a decision from a high ranking officials and only a few cadres know about it”.

“The note of action should go to the desk of the director of the agency. I don’t think that he will decide himself, he will ask to the president. Because these actions can create international problems. It was a time when the peace negotiations were taking place. The note of action was probably prepared by the director of branch office, not by Ayhan Oran. Then next it went to Ugur Kaan Ayık’s desk. His superior’s superior is Sabahattin Asal, who was deputy director of the agency, it possible went to him. Sabahattin Asal was attending the peace negotiations along with Muhammed Dervisoglu. Then it possible went to the desk of Haluk Ozcan the deputy director of General Affairs Department. And after that it ends on the desk of the director. This is how an action note is transferred within the agency. This action was not an action that could be done by a deputy director. It should go up to the director and get approval”.

Aydin Gunel recognized the signatures on the leaked document about Paris massacre: “O. Yuret is the signature of Oguz Yuret. Oguz Yuret is the head of the regional department of MIT in Van. He was the director of the operational department at that time.

U.K. Ayik is Ugur Kaan Ayik. He is the head of Special Operations department right now. He was the head of Ethnic Separatist Activities department at that time.

S. Asal is Sabahattin Asal. He is the deputy director of Strategic Intelligence department. He was a deputy in Ethnic Separatist Activities department in 2012. These are the signatures on the action note”.

The officials also provided information about how the assassination was organized and how Omer Guney’s, the gunman’s travels were arranged: “I heard that French intelligence service sent us a memo to us when Omer Guney’s airline ticket to Paris was leaked at the assassination stage. I know that they (the French) demanded an explanation and there was no answer. The Security Directorate of France also sent a letter to Turkish counterparts. Turkish Security Directorate started an investigation and found the travel agency where the ticket was bought from its PNN number. This agency is in public housing in Yenimahalle neighborhood of Ankara. I have never seen it. We only phone them and they provide us the ticket. They give us PNN number. That ticket was also bought from there, from our agency. It’s not our organization’s but it’s office is in MIT’s public housing. The return ticket of Omer Guney was bought from there”.

The officials spoke about the promotion of those who were behind the assassination: “Ugur Kaan Ayik was appointed to Doha as a representative then he was promoted to the head of special operations department. Oguz Yuret is the head of the regional office in Van. Ayhan Oran was fired from the agency.”
