Scientific experts’ opinion on the death of Şule Çet has been submitted to the court. It said that there is a four-meter distance between where Çet fell and the building, which indicates either she pushed himself to gain speed or was pushed by someone else.
Contrary to the statement of Çağatay Aksu, one of the two defendants who claimed that he tried to catch Çet when she jumped off the window, the opinion concluded that the incident could not occur as he described. The report also said that it is not possible for Aksu to find time to cover a distance of five meters and catch Çet in the air.
Şule Çet died after falling from the 20th floor of a high-rise building on May 29, 2018. In the building, she was with Çağatay A. and Berk A. who claimed she committed suicide.
Both men were arrested after an investigation was opened into the incident. Çağatay a. claimed that she saw Çet when she was jumping the window, tried to stop her by holding her and that left scratches on his hand. Berk A. said he was in another room at the time of the incident.
The investigation also found out that Çet was raped before falling off the window.
The bill of indictment charged both men for murder, rape and violating freedom. (EMK/VK)
