Former AK Party deputy laid to rest after fatal crash

14 May 2012, Monday /TODAY’S ZAMAN
Thousands of people paid their final respects to a former deputy of the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) from Trabzon, Mustafa Cumur, who was killed in a car accident on Sunday, at a funeral service held in the town of Akçaabat in Trabzon province.

Cumur died in a car accident on Sunday. About 2,500 people attended the funeral service at Kavaklı Rahman Mosque, carried out after the noon prayer. Many ministers and deputies both from the ruling AK Party and the opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) attended to the ceremony. His remains were later transported to the Çalköy area of Düzköy, the late deputy’s hometown, for burial. The funeral procession and the crowd that had gathered at the courtyard of the mosque at times caused traffic holdups along the Black Sea coastal highway during the service.
