Diyarbakır polis chief on a roll : I get touched by terrorists
‘ I get touched by every terrorist. Tears and blood should not be Diyarbakır’s fate. This is a very beautiful region with its history and people. It raised very kind people, but now we are producing monsters, why? Due to the lack of inspection, control and because we cannot reach our people and cannot provide human-focused services, that’s all. We are all partly responsible for a child’s going up to mountains. Why don’t I make self-criticism?” the touched police chief cried.
Recep Güven also said he would begin learning Kurdish to set an example to colleagues.
