According to “K” information, the victims of last Friday’s armed attack in a supermarket in Akti Moutsopoulos, in Piraeus, allegedly belong to the group of the Turk Ramazan B. – who was arrested in May in Ampelokipi.

The 29-year-old Ramazan is accused by the Turkish authorities of being the leader of a criminal organization active in the arms and drug trade. He was arrested on May 10 by Greek police officers, after the cooperation of the E.Y.P. with the Turkish intelligence service MIT.

A total of 14 arrest warrants were pending against him, including manslaughter, weapons and drugs. Following cooperation with the opposing Turkish authorities, it emerged that the leader of the organization had also traveled to Greece, possibly being pursued by members of a rival gang.

According to Kathimerini do Kyriaki, During this undercover operation that led to the arrest of Ramazan B, the authorities mapped the people he was in contact with. As “K” reveals, one of these persons was 23-year-old Samet O., who was seriously injured during the attack on the supermarket.

In the course of the last few months, it emerged that the alleged leader of the organization, whose headquarters is in Adana, and the victim of the recent attack had co-existed in a house-hideout they had rented in our country.

Already yesterday, Turkish media reports that the injured – and possibly the dead Mehmet B – belong to Ramazan’s group.

The perpetrator of the bloody attack on the supermarket, questioned by the officers of the Homicide department, attributed the events to personal differences and not to settling accounts between organized crime groups.

The defendant specifically claimed that he knew one of the two Turks he attacked.

As he said, the person in question was blackmailing his uncle in order to pay him money. He refused and was murdered shortly afterwards. The murderous ambush was an act of revenge.
