Hatice Erol, a 26-year-old Turkish woman who suffers from epilepsy and requires daily medication, has been held in pre-trial detention in Konya prison for over 10 months over alleged links to Turkey’s Gülen movement.
The movement is accused by the Turkish government of masterminding a coup attempt on July 15, 2016.
According to a Twitter account, Erol is at immediate risk of having a stroke in prison.
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.
