Gülmen and Özakça not brought to court
Nuriye Gülmen and Semih Özakça won’t be brought in for the first hearing of the case they are in remand for by the gendarmerie’s demand.
Nuriye Gülmen and Semih Özakça, who have been on a hunger strike for 190 days with the demand to be reinstated at their posts they were expelled from by a Statutory Decree, have the first hearing of the case they are in remand for in the Ankara High Criminal Court No.19.
Nuriye Gülmen and Semih Özakça started a sit-in in front of the Human Rights statue in Ankara after they were expelled by a Statutory Decree, and later turned to a hunger strike. They have their first hearing in the Ankara Courthouse today at 13.30, but the educators will not be brought in for the hearing despite their demand to do so.
The decision was made last night by the appeal of the gendarmerie.
