Yüksekdağ: "We return Erdoğan's comments in full"
In a message she sent from prison, Figen Yüksekdağ said: "Demirtaş is the will of 6 million people. Any and all attempts to insults and slanders will bounce off this will. This attack too, like all the others, fail to obscure the sun of the truth."
Figen Yüksekdağ issued a written statement in the name of HDP MPs and elected politicians arrested in Kandıra Type F Prison No:1 regarding the speech AKP Chairperson Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gave in Hamburg, Germany.
The HDP Headquarters published the statement which is as follows:
"The AKP Chairperson thought he could smother the will of the peoples through prison when he failed to defeat it by legitimate political methods, but he was wrong. Now he is trying to save the day with cheap makeshift labelling and insults, humiliating himself and his country in front of the whole world in the process. But, as is apparent, he only sinks lower.
Selahattin Demirtaş and the HDP have come to symbolize what is rightful and legitimate against the illegitimized political power. Demirtaş is the will of 6 million people. Any and all attempts to insults and slanders will bounce off this will. This attack too, like all the others, fail to obscure the sun of the truth.
We call on the AKP Chairperson to account for his collusion with regional and global terrorist organizations before he calls the HDP Co-chair a 'terrorist'. We return his comments in full.
