"Regardless of the fact that the world media report in a similar fashion when it comes to the same or similar crimes, it should not be an excuse or justification for what we did," the statement said.
The editorial board emphasizes that it will continue reporting on this case with the intention of demanding sentencing the suspect to life imprisonment.
