Detained defendant Kamal Kuzu, defendant Selim Kuzu, who was not detained, and party lawyers were present at the hearing, held at the 39th Istanbul High Criminal Court.

‘He was not unconscious, he was holding his blood. My blood is holding it, otherwise it will not leave me. “
Defendant Selim Kuzu, who defended himself at the hearing, said they lost their mother to the coronavirus virus, the virus was transmitted from her father and they did not often argue with her father before the incident and said, “We were with the father at the time of the incident. I lived in the same house. I don’t drink alcohol often, but I did drink alcohol on the day of the ceremony. My father came home drunk, then went to the veranda and drank. I went to fetch food from the fridge at that time and cursed me by talking to myself. Then he started cursing with the scissors of his mustache, he was going to move the scissors, I took his hand and took the scissors and threw it towards the stove. Then he came to me with a big knife, I took it from his hand. As I leaned back, he passed me by and I became a voice. One shot went off, at first I didn’t notice anything. When I turned around, he was trying to load the gun in his hand, his gun stuck. I grabbed his hand and lifted the gun, I tried to take it from his hand, but I couldn’t. His gun hit me in the head and back and I fell to the ground while fighting. She was also on the ground behind me so I got up from the ground and called my sister. Then I pass out. He was not unconscious, he was bleeding. My blood has flowed, otherwise he would not have left me, “he said.

“I had 46 bullets. If I want to continue I will continue.”
In his defense, the accused, Kamal Kuju, said his son did not take care of his mother, he had infected his mother with the corona virus and there had been no quarrel between them before the incident, he said, when I came home. On the day of the incident, I went to the verandah not wanting to see Selim’s face, I did not drink alcohol. He opened the refrigerator door and muttered something, then went to the living room, cursing. This was repeated 6-7 times. So I picked up the mustache that was nearby and said to him, ‘What are you talking about?’ At that time there was a fight between us, after a fight between us I took a gun from the bedroom and shot 1 hand at his leg. I had 46 rounds, if I want to continue, I will. The gun didn’t jam, even if I did, I could restart it. After Selim was injured, I called the ambulance and the police. I give up my complaint, if the other party also gives up, I will accept his / her. “There is no animosity between us. The source of this incident is actually asking for money. When my son was drinking or asking for money, he would always walk up to me and threaten me,” he said. After receiving the defense, the court adjourned the hearing on the continuation of the detention of the plaintiff Kamal Kuju.
