In his video message, Speaker Mustafa Şentop said, “Dr. Sadık Ahmet was a quite valuable politician who loudly expressed Western Thrace Turks’ issues related to human rights and democracy in all international platforms.”
Şentop indicated that he declared the unjust and illegitimate policies of the Greek government to the whole world on the basis of law whereas Greece ignored rights and freedoms of Western Thrace Turks which began with the Lausanne Peace Treaty and was followed by international agreements:
“Sadık Ahmet was a hero who challenged tyrants that were trying to ignore collective rights entitled to Western Thrace Turks in light of international law. Dr. Sadık Ahmet, the pride of Western Thrace Turks, was a quite valuable politician who loudly expressed Western Thrace Turks’ issues related to human rights and democracy in all international platforms as the only Turkish Member of Parliament sent to the Greek Parliament. True to his name, the hero Sadık Ahmet’s cause was always humane and on the side of law.
Those who think they killed Sadık Ahmet on July 24th, 1995 at the age of 48, on the 72nd Anniversary of Lausanne Peace Treaty which protects the rights of Western Thrace Turks, should know that we made sure that each and every official letter addressed to our Foreign Ministry is engraved with his name and cause as ‘Dr. Sadık Ahmet Street, Ankara’. Sadık Ahmet’s cause is a cause of mankind, rights, law and nation. Those who think that they put our Ahmets who are symbols of courage, sense of being a nation and the cause of mankind, under the ground should know that the path he followed and the belief he established is eternal.”
