    Turkish Supreme Court of Appeals Criminal Department overturned on Friday the decision of Kartal Criminal Court to release Mehmet Ali Agca from prison. The Supreme Court of Appeals Criminal Department said that time
    Agca served in Italian prison should not have been deducted from his time in Turkey. 

    Agca was released from Kartal prison in Istanbul on January 12th. 48-year-old Agca, who killed prominent Turkish journalist Abdi Ipekci in 1979 and shot and wounded Pope John Paul II in 1981, was released after serving five and a half years in prison in Istanbul.

    Mehmet Ali Agca served 19 years in an Italian prison for the assassination attempt before being pardoned at the Pope's behest in 2000. He was then extradited to Turkey to serve a separate sentence in Kartal prison for robbery and murder. 

    After Agca was released, Justice Minister Cemil Cicek asked the Court of Appeals to annul Agca's release, arguing that he should serve a full 10-year term for killing Ipekci.
