Mother Şenyaşar demanding justice for murdered family members faces another investigation

Yet another investigation has been launched against Emine Şenyaşar whose husband and two sons were murdered by the AKP people.

The Justice Vigil which was launched on March 9 in front of the courthouse in Urfa by Emine Şenyaşar, who lost her husband and two sons in an armed attack in Suruç district on 14 June 2018 that involved the bodyguards and relatives of AKP Deputy İbrahim Halil Yıldız, and her son Ferit Şenyaşar who was injured in the same attack, is continuing on its 246th day. Mother Emine Şenyaşar could not attend today’s vigil in front of the courthouse as she was summoned to give a statement at the Suruç District Police Department as part of a new investigation launched against her because of some remarks she made during the justice vigil.

As part of the investigation, mother Şenyaşar was summoned to give a statement on the allegation that she "insulted" police officers on the 24th day of the protest.

Previously, a lawsuit had been filed against Emine Şenyaşar on the grounds that she had "insulted" AKP deputy İbrahim Halil Yıldız. Moreover, there is an ongoing investigation against Emine Şenyaşar for "insulting" the Turkish minister of interior, Süleyman Soylu, and three other separate investigations for "insulting" police officers and public employees.

The family tagged the General Assembly account on social media and made the following statement:

“A mother, who demands 'justice' for her children that were murdered in the hospital and imprisoned, is testifying at a police station while the perpetrators are protected. Our justice vigil in front of the courthouse is continuing on its 246th day. Turkey and the Grand National Assembly are just watching this persecution against us.”
