Families’ appeal to visit Imralı rejected

Families of Abdullah Öcalan and three other inmates in Imralı had their appeal to visit their relatives rejected.

Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan family and his tutelar Mazlum Dinç appealed to Bursa Public Prosecutor’s Office yesterday to go to Imralı.

Impralı prisoner Hamili Yıldırım's brother Polat Yıldırım, Ömer Hayri Konar's sister Emin Konar and Veysi Aktaş's sister Salihe Saltık also requested a visit through their lawyers.

The prosecutor’s Office rejected both appeals citing a court order issued on April 22.
