85 years old Kurdish woman in Turkish jail: Take me to my village
Severely sick prisoner Sisê Bingol said, “Take me out of here and to my village before I die.”
85 years old Kurdish woman Sisê Bingol, who has an approved 4 year 2 month sentence that she is serving in the Tarsus Type T Closed Women’s Prison, continues to remain in severe medical condition.
Bingol was hospitalized in the Mersin University Faculty of Medicine Hospital to be issued a report that states her health is not fit for prison on November 2. Bingol was treated in the hospital for 8 days and was released after the procedures was completed, despite her condition not improving. She was sent back to the Tarsus Type T Closed Women’s Prison, and her daughter Hasbike Kanmaz’s request to accompany her was rejected by the prosecutor’s office.
THANKING THE SUPPORTERS
Sisê Bingol met with her daughter in the weekly visitation and sent her regards to all who showed solidarity with her. She added, “If you can, take me out of here and to my village before I die.”
Hasbike Bingol said: “My mother couldn’t have her blood tests and routine checks because she was fatigued. I told her to have the tests done so we can get the medical report. She is supported by other prisoners in there. Her ward mates tend to her every need. My mother is calling for awareness for the public. She wants to get out at once.”
