Ayse Ates who has been in the jail for 4 months is in the hospital but will be returned to the jail after giving birth, reports Set Them Free, a website devoted to women, children and babies in the jails in Turkey.

It is reported in social media that although she needs somebody to accompany her, a prosecutor does not allow her relatives to take care of her.

Gendarme will take the mother and baby to jail.

According to Turkish law, a woman’s sentence is postponed for 6 months after giving birth. Ayse Ates has not been found guilty yet.
