HDP activist Ezgi Orak in custody at anti-terror headquarters
HDP activist Ezgi Orak, kidnapped by plainclothes police in Ankara on Wednesday, is, contrary to what is claimed, in custody at the anti-terror headquarters in Ankara. What she is accused of is still unclear.
HDP activist Ezgi Orak, kidnapped by plainclothes police on the streets of Ankara, is, contrary to what is claimed, in the custody of the Anti-Terrorism Center (TEM). However, it is unclear why she is being held there. The student's legal advisor at Hacettepe University has not yet provided any information.
Ezgi Orak is a member of the Youth Council of the Democratic Party of the Peoples (HDP) and has been the focus of police repression through arrests and spying attempts for some time. On Wednesday, she was forcibly dragged into a vehicle in the presence of female escorts in the government district of Çankaya by four plainclothes officers. A warrant issued against the young woman was used as a justification.
A few days ago, two armed men posing as "plainclothes police" tried to break into the home of HDP MP Tülay Hatimoğulları in Ankara. The men rang the door and the bell for minutes and asked the parliamentarian to open it. When Hatimoğulları warned the police department, they fled on foot. The HDP believes that the politician could have been the victim of an attack, had she opened the door.
