A mother took her 4-year-old child to prison with her after being jailed over alleged links to the Gulen group, which the Turkish government accuses of masterminding a coup attempt in 2016. The group denies any involvement.

According to Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu, a lawmaker from the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), a Turkish woman named Melek Cesur, was place in pre trial detention at a prison in Edirne province on Wednesday. Since her husband has also been arrested over similar charges, their child had nowhere else to go but to join his mother in prison as well.

“The mother has been arrested as well. Tonight, a mother, a father and a child entered Edirne prison. One more family entered a prison,” Gergerlioğlu tweeted.

Since the coup attempt, followers of the Gülen group have been subjected to a massive crackdown, with the Turkish government and pro-government media outlets demonizing its members.

In addition to the thousands who were jailed, scores of other Gülen group followers had to flee Turkey to avoid the government crackdown.
