Öcalan’s lawyers apply to visit Imralı

The lawyers of Abdullah Öcalan filed a new application to Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office to be granted a visit to the Imralı island prison.

Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan's lawyers Raziye Turgut, Rezan Sarıca, Serbay Köklü and İbrahim Bilmez have applied to Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office to meet with their client.

After 8 years of total isolation, Öcalan’s lawyers were able to meet with their client on 2 May, 22 May, 12 June, 18 June and 7 August 2019.

The requests for visits submitted by the Asrin Legal Office have not been answered by the Public Prosecutor's Office since 7 August 2019.

The tightly guarded prison island of Imrali, where the Kurdish leader has been held since 1999, is completely sealed off from the public.
