For this reason, Mustafa Demirbağ held a press conference at his office in Pendik, Istanbul, and told journalists that “Ağca is a free man. He is under no obligation to report to the police station. He is neither under observation nor in detention. We are carrying out the required legal procedures concerning his military service and hospital. We will not go to the police station.”
Tea at the sea front
Demirbağ explained that following his check-up at Gata Haydarpaşa Hospital, Ağca went for a walk under the rain on Kadıköy and Kartal sea fronts and stopped off for some tea. He added that Ağca was “reading the articles written about him, and [was] very interested in what people have to say. He is a calm person and refuses to be a political tool for any group”.
Demirbağ also stated that he and his client were respectful of Cemil Çiçek’s application to the Supreme Court.
