A medical report issued by the Bandırma State Hospital has claimed that an imprisoned Turkish woman was fit to remain in prison despite suffering from stage-2 thyroid cancer, journalist Sevinç Özarslan reported.

The woman, named Gülden Aşık, has recently been sentenced to 6 years and three months in prison over alleged links to the Gulen group, which the Turkish government accuses of masterminding a coup attempt on July 15, 2016.

The group denies any involvement.

According to the report, Aşık had spent some 3 months in the Bandırma prison over similar charges in 2019 and suffered a miscarriage in prison, losing her twins.

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, with most of them pending trial over Gulen links.

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.
