Mustafa Emre Çabuk, a Turkish teacher with a valid Georgian residence permit, was to prison by a Georgian court hours after he was detained by police upon a request by Turkish government, according to wife Tuba Çabuk.
Police teams came to the house of Çabuk family and detained the husband despite having no criminal record in Georgia, Çabuk’s wife said in a video footage she posted on Twitter late on Wednesday.
Emre Çabuk is the principal of a high school established by Gülen group, which is accused by the Turkish gov’t of masterminding a coup attempt on July 15, 2016.
The group denies any involvement.
“Today at 9 in the morning
Georgian police came to our house
And said they were going to detain my husband.
They stated that my husband had no problems in Georgia,
that this demand came from Turkey.
My husband was detained for no reason.
He is a diabetic.
I’m worried that he might be returned to Turkey
Where torture and ill treatment have led to the deaths of many people.
I call on the Georgian gov’t, European cities and human rights associations
To take action [to prevent this from happening],” the wife said in the video.
