Lawyers bring family visit ban imposed on Öcalan to Constitutional Court
Lawyers of Asrın Law Office brought the family visit ban imposed on Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan to the Constitutional Court.
Lawyers of Asrın Law Office brought to the Constitutional Court (AYM) the prevention of family visits imposed on Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan saying these are "unlawful" disciplinary penalties.
In the application, attention was drawn to the "incommunicado status" in which Öcalan is held. This is a status of absolute non-communication.
In the application, the lawyer said that not hearing from Abdullah Öcalan was torture, and demanded from the Constitutional Court to confirm that the right to respect for family and private life, the right to defense and fair trial, and the right to an effective remedy were violated.
