Adana police seized copies of several magazines and books published by the faith-based, government-critic Furkan foundation.

Police stopped a suspected car in Seyhan district to find several books, magazines and electronic devices allegedly belonging to Furkan foundation, which was closed by the government last week.

While the driver, identified as Cemal K., was detained, police seized 18 handbooks, 1,000 magazines, 850 magazine supplements, 30 banners, 38 CDs, a notebook, a cellphone and a desktop computer, all found in the trunk.

At least 28 people including Alparslan Kuytul, Furkan’s president and an outspoken critic of the government, have been detained on charges of “disturbing public order” and “establishing a criminal organization” over the past week.

Some members of the foundation had their homes banned as well.
