Four people detained in Amed

The Turkish regime’s political genocide operations continue unabated in the Kurdish region.

Police forces stormed houses and detained four people as part of an investigation launched by Diyarbakır Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office. The detainees have been taken to provincial security directorate.

Ferda İldan, one of those detained in today’s operation, was sentenced to life sentence in 1995 in a trial before the State Security Court (Devlet Güven Mahkemesi, DGM). Turkish judiciary accepted his demand for retrial over the violation of the articles 3,5 and 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, and ruled his release on 2 August 2019.
