Gulen-linked school manager released on bail by Tbilisi court


Date posted: February 19, 2018

TBILISI, DFWatch–The manager of a private school linked to the exiled Turkish preacher Fethullah Gülen was released on bail by a Tbilisi court on Monday.

Mustafa Emre Cabuk, quality manager at Demirel College, was arrested in May, 2017 in what appeared to be a case of pressure exerted by Turkey on Georgian authorities to crack down on institutions associated with Fethullah Gülen.

Ankara has blamed the U.S.-based preacher for the failed coup in July, 2016.

Before the court released Cabuk on 1,000 lari bail there was immense pressure exerted by Georgian and international human rights activists, as well as politicians, who asserted that extraditing Cabuk to Turkey would inevitably lead to his torture and inhuman treatment.

On February 15, Rebecca Harms, a member of the European Parliament and co-president of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly, visited Çabuk in prison. She has been most vocal in his support since his detention.

“GOOD NEWS: My colleague MP Tamar Khulordava from Georgia just wrote me that Mustafa is free on bail. I am very happy for him, his family and for #Georgia. #FreeCabuk,” She tweeted on Monday.

The Government Response to Turkey’s Coup Is an Affront to Democracy

It is vital for Washington and Turkey’s other international partners now to use all their influence to press Ankara to reverse course, to safeguards the rights of those caught up in the purge, and to strengthen rather than weaken the independence of the institutions that underpin it, including the courts, media, universities and parliament itself. The people who died defending it deserve nothing less.
