“I did not want her to go as she is still very vulnerable, but she told me she wanted to. We had been told that if she didn’t go it could delay the case by several months and we don’t want that to happen,” he said.
“I am worried about her being in the same court as him (Cetin). I don’t want him near her or anywhere where he can have eye contact with her. Our lawyer is going to speak to the judge to see if she can give her evidence in another room.”
Shannon had been on a boat trip with friends on the day that Cetin coaxed her mother and Ms Dinsmore to take a trip with him from Kusadasi to Izmir.
He then brought the women to a small forest where he stabbed them to death and abandoned their bodies.
Baris Kaska, a lawyer representing the women’s families, told the Belfast Telegraph: “How he convinced those women to go to Izmir with him I don’t know. They only had €10 on them. If you thought you were going on a trip to the city you would have more money. They were also not dressed for a trip to the city, they were dressed in clothes to wear inside the house.
“Also, how did he get them to go to this area (where they were murdered)? This is not a nice place. This is not a picnic area. You do not want to go there. I don’t know what he told these women to make them go in there with him,” Mr Kaska added.
The next time Shannon saw her boyfriend was later that evening when he arrived home with cuts to his hands, claiming that her mother and Ms Dinsmore had been kidnapped and that he had been attacked trying to help them.
Cetin later confessed to police that he had killed the women.
The first stage of the double- murder trial will be held in a juvenile court as suspicion continues to remain over Cetin’s true age.
He is claiming to be 17. However, his victims’ families believe he is much older and want him tried and sentenced in an adult court. In the area of Turkey where Cetin was born many women have home births, and there is therefore no accurate record of date of birth.
