Necip Hablemitoğlu

Dr Necip Hablemitoğlu (28 November 1954–19 December 2002) was a Turkish historian and intellectual. He died as a result of assassination in front of his house in 2002. The perpetrators of this assassination still not found. In Ergenekon trial testimony, however, detained suspects Osman Yildirim claimed that Osman Gurbuz killed him by the motivation of detained suspects Veli Küçük and Muzaffer Tekin for a false flag operation. [1] [2]

He is survived by his wife Prof Dr Şengül Hablemitoglu, and daughters Kanije, and Uyvar. [3]



The murder case is unresolved. According to one hypothesis, he was assassinated in a false flag operation by gendarmerie general Veli Küçük (his trial continues on Ergenekon (organization) case) that was pinned on Islamists; [4] while another hypothesis is that the German GSG 9 secret service was responsible (the motive relating to the Bergama issue, explained below).[5]

Hablemitoğlu seems to have known that he was targeted, for his daughters asked him about what to do in the event of an assault.[6] The last thing he did on the day of his attack was to go grocery shopping at Migros. According to security camera records and receipts from the store, he left at 20:05. He was assassinated after returning home a few minutes later.[6]


Studies on Cirimea Turkish

He first introduced himself to the Turkish public with a series of articles titled "Yuzbinlerin Surgunu" [The Deportation of the Hundreds and Thousands], which was published in the Turkish daily Aksam in the 1970s. These articles were later issued as a book with the same title. Considering the silence of the entire world, including the Turkic world, about the brutal deportation of the Crimean Tatar people by Soviet authorities during World War II, Hablemitoglu's articles written during the sensitive "Cold War" era, were indeed a daring attempt to draw world's attention to this politically "hot" issue. He continued to work on Crimean Tatar and other Turkic issues by publishing the journal Birlik in the early 1970s. Carlik Rusyasi'nda Turk Kongreleri (1905-1917) [Turkic Congresses in Tsarist Russia (1915-1917)] was another of his scholarly contribution to the history of the Turkic peoples of Russia, a subject he was deeply interested in. With his wife Sengul Hablemitoglu, he co-authored one of the most important books related to Crimean Tatars, Sefika Gaspirali ve Rusya'da Turk Kadin Hareketleri (1893-1920) [Sefika Gaspirali and Turkic Women's Movement in Russia (1893-1920)]. (See: Dr. Necip Hablemitoglu also wrote numerous articles related to Crimea and Crimean Tatars, mostly published in Crimean Tatar bi-monthly journal Kirim, issued in Ankara, Turkey

Studies on German NGOs in Turkey

His book, Alman Vakıfları ve Bergama Dosyası , was accused German NGOs operating in Turkey with espionage. The accusations were found wanting in court, as a consequence of which his publisher was fined 50 billion Lira (later reduced to a symbolic 1 billion after the prosecution declared that their grievance was not monetary).[7] The Bergama issue revolved around the gold industry. It is claimed that Turkey imported 800 million dollars worth of gold from Germany annually, and the discovery of a gold mine in Bergama posed a threat which had to be stopped. So in order to achieve that, the offices of various German NGOs in Turkey are claimed to have backhandedly financed and organized the anti-goldmine activist movements by local villagers in the area.[8]
