Prosecutor rejects visit application presented by Öcalan’s lawyers
The application made by the lawyers of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan to meet with his clients was once again rejected.
Lawyers of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan, Nevroz Uysal, Faik Özgür Erol, Cengiz Yürekli and Mazlum Dinç, applied to the Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office to meet with their client. However, the application made on Thursday was rejected on the grounds of the 6-month ban on visit imposed on Öcalan.
The Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office imposed a 6-month ban on lawyers’ visit on September 23 using as a pretext the "Road Map" prepared by Abdullah Öcalan in addition to his defense and sent to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in 2009.
