Police raid house of IHD co-chair Eren Keskin

Police raided the home of IHD co-chair Eren Keskin's mother. "An investigation has been launched about a speech I made two and a half years ago. I'm going to testify on Tuesday," said Keskin, adding that the raid was just to annoy her.

The house of Fatma Sevgi Keskin, mother of Human Rights Association (IHD) co-chair, Eren Keskin, was raided by the police on Friday evening. The police said they wanted to take a statement from the lawyer about a speech she made in Dersim over two years ago.

Keskin said that she was not at home during the raid, and that the police called her asking her to give a statement. Keskin said that she would go to testify on Tuesday. “They came to my house at that time in the evening. Did they come to take my statement at this time? They got my phone number and called. They said the reason for the raid was a speech I made in Dersim two and a half years ago. At that panel, I spoke about rights violations. Therefore, an investigation was opened with the allegation that I was 'making propaganda for a terrorist organization'. I am in public spaces every day, and do they need to go to a lawyer's house at this time? It's just silly. They do it to annoy. I'm going to testify on Tuesday."
