A police officer identified only as Ahmet S. is on trial accused of shooting to death 26-year-old Ethem Sarisuluk during mass anti-government street protests in Ankara in June. The Ankara court rejected a demand by the victim's lawyers that the defendant be detained and ruled instead that he could take part in hearings via video conference for security reasons.
