was a Turkish journalist, intellectual and activist for human rights. He was assassinated while editor in chief of the major Turkish newspaper Millyet. He died  in 1979.

 

 A highly respected journalist, he was a proponent of the separation of religion and state, and an advocate of dialogue and conciliation with Greece, as well as of human rights for the various minorities in Turkey.

 

On February 1, 1979, a member of the ultra-nationalist Grey Wolves, Mehmet Ali Ağca (the same who later shot pope John Paul II), murdered Abdi İpekçi in his car on the way back home from his office in front of his apartment building in Istanbul. Ağca was caught due to an informant and was sentenced to life in prison. After serving six months in a military prison in Istanbul, Ağca escaped with the help of the Grey Wolves and fled to Bulgaria, which was then a base of operation for the Turkish mafia.
