The murder of a 16-year-old school girl last December was caught on the school’s security cameras and the footage may be shown at the trial, the AD said on Friday.

Humeyra was was shot dead in the college bicycle shed just 45 minutes before she was due to meet police to talk about being stalked.

Bekir E, who had been given a suspended jail term and banned from contacting the girl in August last year, has been charged with the killing, along with another man. Humeyra had a short relationship with him, but broke if off after discovering he was 30.

News of the footage, said to be extremely clear, was made public at a procedural hearing, ahead of the November trial.

The girl’s family are opposed to the film being shown, as are lawyers for the two defendants, the AD said. Nevertheless, the judge wants to keep the option open, depending on how the case progresses, the AD said.
