Turkish teacher Fatma Ozturk was detained just after she gave birth to her baby at Ege Umut Hospital in Manisa’s Turgutlu district while police handcuffed her to a bed she is resting on.
Police detained Ozturk over her alleged links to the Gulen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt. The group denies the accusation.
An anonymous tip submitted to magduriyetler.com, police raided Ege Umut Hospital in Turgutlu and handcuffed Ozturk to the bed just after she delivered her baby.
The tip said police await at hospital entrance and that mother and baby’s health condition remain serious.
“There is no chance of getting a lawyer,” the tip also underlined.
