"A True Believer of Forgiveness & Compassion"

 

Pope John Paul II meets with his would-be assassin, Turkish terrorist Mehmet Ali Agca, in Agca's prison cell in Rome. Italy's President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi pardoned Mehmet Ali Agca in 2000 and Italian Justice Minister Piero Fassino then authorized Agca's extradition to Turkey to serve a prison sentence for an unrelated killing:

During a private meeting following Pope John Paul II's weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square, the pope embraces Muzeyen Agca, mother of Mehmet Ali Agca - the man who shot the Pontiff 15 years earlier. Agca's lawyer says she plans to file appeals with Italian authorities either for his pardon or transfer to Turkey:

According to a Vatican spokesman, the Pontiff personally intervened with Italian authorities to gain the release and pardon of Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turk who sought to kill him in 1981. The Pontiff, speaking to children at a Rome parish on Oct. 10, 1999, said the teachings of Christ instructed him to forgive Agca.
