Işık Sadık Ahmet, Honorary President of the Friendship, Equality and Peace (FEP) Party, evaluated the statements of Spartans MP Vasilis Stigas, who insulted his wife Dr Sadık Ahmet, as follows: "His excessive and outrageous insults against a deceased community leader and the spiritual memory of the head of the family have deeply disturbed us. Such disrespectful statements have been a source of deep disrespect and hurt not only to the memory of Dr Sadık Ahmet, but also to us as family members."

Sadık Ahmet family members reacted to Sitgas' statements and invited Stigas to apologise.

On behalf of the Sadık Ahmet family, Işık Sadık Ahmet made the following statements on his social media account:

"On 17.12.2023, in the Greek Parliament, the chairman of the Spartiates parliamentary group, STIGAS, said: "The deputy of the Greek state was saying that he was a Turk. Until the tractor hit him, he was relieved and so were we", his excessive and outrageous insults against a deceased community leader and the spiritual memory of the head of the family have greatly disturbed us. Such disrespectful statements have been a source of deep disrespect and hurt not only to the memory of Dr Sadık Ahmet, but also to us as family members.

As a family, we are left alone with the pain of losing Dr Sadık Ahmet every day. Although 28 years have passed since his death, the repetition of such an insult in the country where we are citizens has further deepened the difficult process our family is going through.

Such racist and disrespectful expressions damage not only us, but also social peace and tranquillity. It is unacceptable and reprehensible to use ethnic origins, beliefs or any personal characteristic as a material for attack.

On this occasion, we condemn this outrageous and disrespectful insult to the memory of Dr. Sadık Ahmet and invite STIGAS to apologise to our family and community."
