Ten suspects appeared before an Ankara court on Monday as the trial following the high-speed train derailment that killed nine people in Turkey's capital in 2018 got underway.
The suspects, most of them Turkish State Railways (TCDD) employees and officials, are being charged with causing multiple deaths and injuries.
In his opening defense, lead suspect and switch operator Osman Yıldırım said he was normally stationed in Samsun and that he was in Ankara temporarily when the accident occurred, adding that he was not sufficiently trained on the local railroads.
