It has been claimed that the restaurant attack in the city of Zwolle in the north of the Netherlands on Wednesday evening, in which two brothers of Turkish origin were killed, was “linked to criminal organizations”.
According to Dutch media, one of the victims, Ali Torunlar, had links with the criminal organization. Hüseyin Torunlar, who was unaware of anything, died because he was “in the wrong place at the wrong time”.
Relatives of the two brothers who were killed denied the allegations and said that the news that Ali Torunlar had connections with criminal organizations was “just speculation”.
Hüseyin Torunlar, 62, and his brother, Ali Torunlar, 57, were sitting at a table in a McDonald’s restaurant, when they were attacked by a person who came near them.
The suspect is being questioned
While the Torunlar brothers, who were originally from Erzincan, died at the scene, it was announced that the attacker, who fled, surrendered to the police in the city of Deventer, 35 kilometers away. The 32-year-old male suspect, who was arrested, is being questioned.
Baybaşin was sentenced to life imprisonment in the Netherlands for murder, incitement to murder, hostage-taking, drug trafficking and membership in an organized crime organization.
Dutch media: Ali Torunlar also owed a large amount of money to criminal organizations
Sources who provided information to the Dutch media claimed that Ali Torunlar, who is also a wholesaler and manager of restaurant supplies, has a large amount of debts to official institutions and criminal organizations, therefore he has been living in Turkey for a long time.
According to sources, the reason Ali Torunlar, who returned to the Netherlands a while ago, was at McDonald’s was to meet with debtors.
According to the Alevi community in Zwolle, Ali Torunlar had no ties to criminal organizations. A source from the Zwolle Alevi Cultural Association told Dutch media, “Hüseyin was a golden man for the Alevi community.”
‘I vouch for everything’
According to sources speaking to BBC Turkish , Hüseyin Torunlar, the owner of the website “AjansXpress”, was a popular figure in the Zwolle Alevi community who helped everyone.
Binali Batman, director of the Dutch Alevi Culture Associations Federation (Hak – Der) Funeral Fund, one of Hüseyin Torunlar’s close friends, said, “I haven’t seen Ali for many years, but we were like brothers with Hüseyin. I don’t think he will have anything to do with criminal organizations. I vouch for everything,” he said.
The police did not provide information about the connection of the incident with criminal organizations. The police spokesman said that the reason for the presence of the two brothers, who are well-known people in the city, is being investigated.
Relatives of the murdered Hüseyin and Ali Torunlar said that they were shocked by the murder and did not know the reason.
Relatives, who said that the “criminal organization connection” news about Ali Torunlar in the Dutch media were unfounded, argued that these were speculations.
The relatives of the victim also stated that the police asked them not to make any statements to the media for the sake of the investigation.
