/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The hearing for the 19 suspects in connection to the
murder of Hrant Dink, the editor-in-chief of Agos bilingual newspaper,
continued in Istanbul's 14th High Criminal Court.

It is being investigated into whether Veli Kucuk, arrested as suspect
in links with Ergenekon, visited Yasin Hayal in prison.

The attorneys for the Dink family stated that Veli Kucuk visited Hayal
in jail after the event. The attorneys asked Hayal: "Did you get to
know him after meeting with Veli Kucuk in jail?" Hayal responded:
"They also know that this did not happen." It was stated that a
letter was sent to both the Istanbul Bayrampasa and Trabzon prisons
to receive detailed information on Veli Kucuk's visit to see Hayal.
