Resistance of Şenyaşar family outside Urfa Courthouse marks its 157th day

The resistance of the Şenyaşar family marks its 157th day. Mother Emine Şenyaşar said that the authorities know nothing but persecution.

The “Justice Vigil” in front of the courthouse in Urfa, launched by Emine Şenyaşar, who lost her husband and two sons in an armed attack organized by the bodyguards and relatives of AKP MP İbrahim Halil Yıldız, and his son Ferit Şenyaşar, who was injured in the same attack, is continuing on its 157th day.

The family came to the area called "Şenyaşar Family Justice Corner" in front of the Urfa Courthouse in the early hours of the morning. The family displayed a banner that said “A father and his two sons were murdered in the Suruç State Hospital on 14.07.2018. No perpetrator has been found for the last three years. Let the law of the superiors end, justice for all” with a photo of father Hacı Esvet and his sons Adil and Celal Şenyaşar, who lost their lives in the attack.


“We have been seeking justice here for a long time. They killed three members of my family. They put my other son in prison. The perpetrators are walking out there freely. They know nothing but persecution. I am sick. I have no strength left. My jailed son should be released. Is there no mercy and no conscience? If I'm going to die, I'll die here,” mother Emine Şenyaşar said.

“Three people were killed in a state hospital and no lawsuit has been launched for three years. The law of superiors pervades within judicial institutions. Our fight for justice is on its 157th day,” the family said on their Twitter account.
