Put under detention with his mother at Ankara’s Sincan Prison, a two-month-old newborn had been denied access to breast milk for 17 days.

According to Republican Peoples’ Party (CHP) deputy Mahmut Tanal, the 53-days-old baby was not able to be breastfed by his mother for 17 days.

While the details are yet to be shared, the mother was reportedly detained as part of an investigation into the Gülen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding a coup attempt on July 15.
