Fatma Güleç, a Turkish woman from Samsun province, has been put in pre-trial detention by a Turkish court over alleged links to Turkey’s Gülen group, which is accused by the Turkish government of masterminding a coup attempt in 2016.
According to Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu, one of Turkey’s most renowned human rights activists and pro Kurdish HDP deputy, as mother Güleç was arrested on coup charges, her 2-year-old daughter Evfa was left in care of relatives in Samsun province.
“She was arrested on the eve of Eid-Ul-Adha. When I once brought forward these incidents, one AKP deputy (Diyarbakır, Oya Eronat) reacted to me, saying that even diapers are being provided to kids in prison. Even a stone cracks, but not cruel hearts,” Gergerlioğlu tweeted.
Eid al-adha is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year.
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.
Arefe günü tutuklanmış, 2 y bebek ne yapacağını bilemiyor..!
Bu vakaları gündem ettiğimde bir Ak Partili kadın vekil( Diyarbakır, Oya Eronat) ' cezaevinde bebek bezi de veriyorlarmış, hizmet çok iyi, söylenip duruyorsun' demişti
Taşlar bile çatlar ama ya hissiz kalpler?? https://t.co/jYsQhYYg4o
