Pregnant with twins, Kocaeli woman detained during control at hospital


Date posted: July 6, 2017

Nuriye Yalcin, a Kocaeli woman who is expected to deliver twin babies in 4.5 months was detained during a regular medical control at Izmit Medical Park Hospital on Tuesday.

Accused of having links to the Gulen movement, Yalcin was held under police custody for 5 hours in Kocali’s Izmit district before she was taken to another police station in the neighboring province of Sakarya.

Turkish government accuses the movement of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt while the latter denies involvement.

It is still unknown whether the court overseeing the case put Yalcin in pre-trial arrest or not, according to Turkish media.

More than 120,000 people have been detained over alleged or real ties to the movement so far.
