Halkın Hukuk Bürosu üyesi avukatların, 4 gündür gözaltında bulunan müvekkilleriyle görüştürülmedikleri için Çağlayan’daki İstanbul Adliyesi’nin 7. katında oturma eylemi yapan Avukatlar Oya Aslan, Özgür Yılmaz ve gözaltını engellemek isteyen Avukatlar Günay Dağ, Ezgi Gökten ve stajyer avukat Ahmet Mandacı gözaltına alındı.
Müvekkillerinin alındığı evde her yerin ‘kan içinde’ olduğunu aktaran avukatlardan Ebru Timtik BirGün’e şu bilgileri aktardı: “Anayasa tamamen askıda. Hukuksuz uygulamalar, Adalet Bakanlığı eliyle devam ediyor.
OHAL kapsamındaki hukuksuz uygulamalardan en önemlilerinden biri de, Anayasa’ya ve mevcut yasalara aykırı olarak tutuklu ve hükümlülerin avukat yardımından faydalanmalarını engellemek. Müvekkillerimiz 4 gündür gözaltında durumları hakkında bilgi alınamıyor. Israrlar onlarla görüştürülmüyoruz. 4 gündür soruşturma numarası bile alamadık. Bu konuda suç duyurusu ve başvurular için savcılık önündeyiz içeri alınmıyoruz. Tüm bunlar için haklarımızı alana kadar oturma eylemindeyiz.“
(commentary today on Facebook from Ceren Uysal: “Today, Att. Oya Aslan and Att. Özgür Yılmaz were in Çağlayan Courthouse to talk with the prosecutor about their clients who were under detained for 3 days. There were really important evidences that their clients had been tortured by police. But even the situation is that much urgent, no one gave them any information. Even they did not tell them the name of the prosecutor, the place where their clients are or the number of the file. So two lawyers started to sit ın the ground and protested the unlawfull situation.
Finally they were informed about the name of the judge but this time judge refused their applications and told them that their clients have no chance to access a lawyer before 22th of August.
Lawyers, of course, insisted but than the police attacked them and under detained them according to will of prosecutor. The other lawyers who are again the member of CHD (Progressive Lawyer Assosiation) ; Günay Dağ, Ezgi Gökten and Ahmet Çamur, they wanted to prevent the police while the police was trying to attack to Oya and Özgür. Than police also captured them and told them that they are also under detained.
Lawyers waited in a prison which is located in Cağlayan Courthouse for 2-3 hours but than prosecutor decided to keep them one more night and sent them to main police station in Istanbul, which is called Vatan Police Station. And lawyers resisted this decision, did not want to go cause it was just a decision which has no legal excuse but extremly “punishing them”. So than police started to torture them.
After the state of emergency and with the regulations which are directly engaged with it, right now it is impossible for all lawyers to practice their role. And also unfortunatly bar assosiations are not taking side by lawyers but last week they preferred to visit the president in his “palace” and shaked hands. So right now they prefer to act like everything is ok in Turkey. But it is not. Right now what is happening in Turkey is just fasicm. If someone claims something else, than please first change the definition of democrasy.”)
