    The Turkish Supreme Court has approved the punishment of 18 years and 10 months imprisonment in the case of Trabzon youth O.A., accused of murdering Priest Andrea Santoro of the Trabzon Santa Maria Church in February 2005. The ruling, which came after an appeals process by O.A.'s attorney, elicited this response from Hikmet A., the young man's father:

    "The lawyers we conferred with told us that they were 100% sure the punishment would be lessened. Had this child shot a 'muftu' (Muslim religious cleric), he would have gotten out of prison after 3 years. The priest's mother and sister have already forgiven our son, so why can't the state forgive him? Because a priest was killed?"
