Emine Şenyaşar summoned to give a statement to the police for the 9th time

Emine Şenyaşar, who is struggling for justice for her husband and two sons who were murdered in Urfa, was summoned by police to give a statement for the 9th time.

Emine Şenyaşar, who lost her husband and two sons in an armed attack in Suruç district of Urfa on 14 June 2018, continues her fight for justice. The woman holding a vigil for justice in front of the Urfa Courthouse is accompanied by her son Ferit Şenyaşar, who was injured in the same attack that involved AKP Deputy İbrahim Halil Yıldız's bodyguards and relatives.

On the 267th day of the vigil, mother Emine Şenyaşar could not come to the courthouse since she was summoned to give a statement at the Suruç District Police Department.

Ferit Şenyaşar started the vigil in the area called “Şenyaşar Family Justice Corner” displaying a banner that read “We want justice”.

It is reported that Emine Şenyaşar was summoned by the police since she allegedly “insulted” public officials during a vigil. This is the 9th time she has been summoned for the same reason.

A lawsuit was also filed against Şenyaşar on the grounds that she “insulted” AKP Deputy İbrahim Halil Yıldız and Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu.

The Şenyaşar family published a new message on their Twitter account, sharing a video of a discussion about the massacre on a TV channel on the evening of November 29.

“It is a requirement of being human to stand with justice and righteousness. Our struggle for justice continues within the framework of laws. Everyone is asking this question: Is Urfa a province of Turkey?” the family tweeted.
