Head of the 2nd Chamber of the Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK) Nesibe Özer, who was arrested as part of an investigation into the faith-based Gülen movement, has gone on a hunger strike to protest being confined to a cell, the Hürriyet daily reported on Wednesday.

Özer was arrested in the aftermath of a failed military attempt on July 15 for which the government pins the blame on the Gülen movement.

She was jailed at Bakırköy Prison in Istanbul where she was put in a cell on Sept. 9.
