Torture, Yes, Pay, No!!

Ugur Kantar was a private in the army of Turkey and he did something wrong that upset his superiors. As punishment for his misdeeds, Private Kantar was subject to brutal punisment that nearly led to his death. He was then released from the armed forces because he no longer was physically able to perform his duties. Shortly after leaving the armed forces, former Private Kantar succumbed to illness that arose from the torture. His family then petitoned for an insurance payment.

The Army informed the parents that he died AFTER leaving the service so it was not responsible for the fact that he died. I am a bit confused as to the thinking of Turkey’s armed forces.
