HDP co-mayors of Van's İpekyolu district jailed

The Turkish regime’s political genocide operations against the Kurdish people and their elected representatives have increased.

Co-mayors of Van’s İpekyolu district municipality held by the HDP were taken into custody last Friday. The co-mayors, Şehzade Kurt and Azim Yacan, were then replaced by a trustee appointed to their position on Saturday.

Both co-mayors were remanded in custody and sent to prison today.
