Şiban said: “When people returned to the village were free, I went and built a house. I lived there during certain months of the year. No organization member came to my house. I'm staying in the plateau and I haven't seen any activity there either. I stay at my house for two months a year, mow the grass and take care of it. My house is empty for 10 months of the year. I didn't bury anything like a tube or diesel anywhere. I want my acquittal.”
One of the witnesses, N.A., said that he knew Şiban but had no relationship, while the other witness, Y.S. On the other hand, he claimed that the information he gave to the police was correct and that Şiban was a "member of an organization".
