Nazmiye Düzgün, a 30-year-old Turkish woman, has been sentenced to seven years and three months over her alleged links to Turkey’s Gülen group, accused of masterminding a coup attempt in 2016.
According to a Twitter account, Düzgün, the mother of two kids, has been held in an Aydın prison for over a year on accusation of membership in an armed terrorist organization and recently given a prison sentence of seven years and three months on the same charges.
The claim has neither been confirmed nor denied by the Turkish authorities.
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.
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.
