Arinc says reactions aganist Ergenekon verdict "emotional"
Referring to recent verdicts of Turkish court in Ergenekon trial, Deputy Prime Minister and government spokesman Bulent Arinc said on Monday that judiciary made the right decision, adding that judgment should be respected. Speaking after the Council of Ministers meeting, Arinc said, "Nobody has the privilege of commiting crimes. We are not people who are going to be happy about anybody's arrest. But there is a court ruling and everyone should respect it. I consider the criticism from suspects and their relatives as emotional, rather," Arinc said, noting that the defense lawyers would eventually appeal the decision. "It might be said that some rulings against suspects are too heavy. We are not at a point to like or dislike the ruling. Even if we like it or not, we are obliged to conform to it," Arinc added.
