Prisoner with disability remains behind bars!
Prisoner Serdal Yıldırım has not been released despite a disability of 98 percent.
Serdal Yıldırım (27), who is detained in Metris R Type Closed Prison, has not been released despite a report saying "he cannot stay in prison" issued by the Forensic Medicine Institute (ATK).
On February 5 the ATK issued a report on Yıldırım, who has a 98 percent disability. Bakırköy Prosecutor's Office wrote to the Mardin Provincial Security Directorate TEM Branch Office, asking for information about whether Yıldırım would pose a threat to public security if he were released.
Police: Release poses a big threat
The Police Department replied that "if his sentence is postponed, it will create a serious and concrete danger in terms of public security." The penal institution also rejected Yıldırım's request for postponement of his sentence on the grounds that it would "pose a risk to public security".
Vedat Ece, Yıldırım's lawyer appealed to the Bakırköy judge of execution and asked for his client to be released. Ece also wrote to the penal institution asking on what grounds the Mardin Provincial Security Directorate TEM Branch Office rejected Yıldırm request.
