A two-year-old kid with autism has been left to the care of relatives as her mother was put in pre-trial detention over alleged links to Turkey’s Gülen group, which is accused by the Turkish government of masterminding a coup attempt in 2016.
According to a Twitter account, mother Rabia Tay was arrested by an Ankara court and sent to the Sincan prison on accusiation of membership in an armed terrorist organization. Her 2-year-old kid Tunahan was left to the care of relatives.
The claim has neither been confirmed nor denied by the Turkish authorities.
Turkish government survived the attempt that killed over 240 people and wounded more than a thousand others, however; AK Party officials along with Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen group and launched a widespread war on its alleged and real followers.
There are more than 17,000 women and over 500 kids in Turkish prisons.
In several cases, women were detained in the hospital immediately after the delivery of her baby and before they had a chance to recover. Many women were jailed as they were visiting their imprisoned husbands, leaving the children stranded in the ensuing chaos.
