TURKEY-POLITICS -Grand Unity Party appreciates president's determination about helicopter crash investigation.

ANKARA, Aug 5, 2011 (TUR) -- Turkey's Grand Unity Party (BBP) appreciated President Abdullah Gul's determination and devoutness regarding an investigation into the helicopter crash that killed the party's former chairperson.

President Gul received BBP Chairman Destici and accompanying members of the party at the Presidential Residence in Ankara.

"After this meeting, we have full belief that the crash will be illuminated in a way that will evade all suspicion," Destici told reporters.

On March 25, 2009, a helicopter carrying BBP leader Muhsin Yazicioglu crashed near central Anatolian province of Yozgat, killing Yazicioglu as well as five more people.

Destici said BBP had seen that the president had huge information about the incident and details, and he had done what he had to do to illuminate the incident.

BBP chairperson said authorities had reached serious findings after the president showed interest in the issue, and new developments would be made public soon.

Destici also said BBP presented a report on counter-terrorism to President Abdullah Gul.
