World Bulletin / News Desk

An Ankara prosecutor is seeking prison sentences of 8.5 to 24 years for members of RedHack, a hacker group responsible for attacks on several government and public websites.

The indictment, prepared by the Ankara Deputy Chief Public Prosecutor's Office and naming 10 members of the socialist hacker group, was recently accepted by the Ankara 13th High Criminal Court.

 The suspects include three held under arrest -- Duygu Kerimoğlu, Alaattin Karagenç and Uğur Cihan Oktulmuş, under arrest for the past seven months. The suspects stand accused of membership in an armed terrorist organization, illegally obtaining confidential documents and personal information and accessing information systems without permission.

RedHack, which is affiliated with the international hacking group Anonymous, had earlier attacked websites belonging to the Turkish Football Federation (TFF), National Intelligence Organization (MİT), the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK), the Land Forces Command, the Air Forces Command, Turkish telecommunications mega-corporation Türk Telekom and a number of other institutions.
