Police awaiting outside hospital to detain woman who just gave birth


Date posted: July 15, 2017

A group of police officers has been waiting outside of private Hizmet Hospital in Istanbul’s Bahcelievler district in order to detain a woman who gave birth to her third child just several hours ago, according to Turkish media.

While the details of the incident are still unknown, police raided Hizmet Hospital to detain Yasemin Ozkan, who gave birth to a baby at the C-section on Friday.

Ozkan is facing a detention warrant as part of an investigation into the Gulen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt.

This is not the first detention of a woman immediately after delivery.

More than 120,000 people have been detained and over 50,000 arrested over links to the movement.

According to recent data released by the Ministry of Justice, more than 2,250 mothers are held in penal institutions, of whom 520 are obliged to raise their 0 to 6-year-old children in prison.

Draft law on prep schools

The first adverse effect is related to unemployment. The AKP did not keep its promise to provide jobs at public institutions to all the prep school teachers who are not hired by the new private schools. Only teachers with six years of experience will have the chance of being hired at public schools. Thus, tens of thousands of prep school teachers will definitely lose their jobs since only the large, well-established prep schools can take the financial risks of re-establishing themselves as a new private school.
