Nalan Ekrem, a lawyer and a rights activist with the Citizens Assembly and İlknur Üstün of Women’s Coalition were detained only 4 days after she was released on judicial control, on Saturday.

An Istanbul court, on Tuesday, put in pre-trial arrest six human rights activists including Amnesty International’s (AI) Turkey director Idil Eser while releasing four rights defenders — Nalan Ekrem, Şeyhmus Özbekli, Nejat Taştan and İlknur Üstün– on judicial control in the same investigation.

İstanbul’s Adalar Public Prosecutor’s Office issued detention warrants for four human rights defenders on Friday and Ekrem was detained along with Üstün again on Saturday.
