Leaked photo shows 11 hijabi women, 2 babies in Bursa prison on terror, coup charges


Date posted: March 2, 2019

A leaked photo from the Bursa prison shows a total of eleven women with two babies being held being held under arrest for months on terror and coup charges.

According to Cevheri Güven, a Turkish journalist, there are two medical doctors, and two primary school teachers in the picture.

The women are accused of having a membership in the Gülen movement, accused by the Turkish authorities to mastermind a coup attempt on July 15, 2016.

The movement denies any involvement.

The picture was reportedly taken by the Bursa prison managamen and it has been circulating online in the legal community.

It’s illegal to publish photos taken by a prison management, but Turkey Purge broke the rules to get the image out.

More than 160,000 people have passed through police custody, of which 60,000 were remanded in prison pending trial over Gulen links since the summer of 2016.

It must be realized that religion is a matter for individual citizens. It is likely that the Gülen community will face restrictions and pressure from the government [as the AK Party government’s supporters have accused the Gülen movement of discrediting a number of ministers and their relatives in relation to a recent investigation into alleged bribery in public tenders, which saw the sons of three Cabinet ministers taken into custody alongside construction moguls and bureaucrats]. What we have been defending are universal rights, including the freedom of religion and belief. If these can be achieved, everybody will benefit from them, not just the Alevi community.

The turmoil in Turkey – The terror threat is real and is made worse by Erdogan’s paranoia

Mr. Erdogan’s own Islamist and autocratic tendencies have also compounded the country’s vulnerability. Since an attempted coup last summer, the President has purged thousands of police officers and soldiers, and the resulting talent and resources gap may have damaged Ankara’s counterterror capabilities.
