Barkın Timtik.  She is a lawyer,  and an executive board member of ÇHD. She has been detained in Esenyurt Police Station for four days. Today for the first time she had a chance to access her lawyers. And these are the pictures of torture.

There is a message from Barkın Timtik who is a lawyer and still in police station:

“I was talking with my client before the lunch. In an instant, polices and their vechiles appeared in the garden of Cemevi. They came inside and they started to beat people. They hitted me and children who are just 3-4 years old inside Cemevi with their guns. Then they used pepper gas for the people who were in the lunch area. They detained everyone who were in Cemevi and they just throwed us to the basketball court and used gases. A gas canister came to my face. Police also hit me when I was in police bus”
