Aysun Şahin , a Turkish woman with multiple sclerosis (MS) was denied release on probation for the second time, despite health reports attesting to her poor health.
MS is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, which is the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.
Şahin has been held in the Düzce T Type prison over alleged links to Turkey’s Gulen group, which the Turkish government accuses of masterminding a coup attempt in July 15, 2016. The group denies any involvement.
According to the Bold news portal, the purge-victim woman is not able to perform daily functions due to constant pain and discomfort. She reportedly has a disability rate of 48 percent and was diagnosed with MS disease in 2011.
