Turkey: Progressive Lawyers Association Condemned Detention Of Its 2 Members

August 13, 2017

Lawyer Deniz YILDIRIM who is Antalya branch chair of CHD – Progressive Lawyers Association and Ramazan GOKALP were detained yesterday, in the province of Antalya. Antalya Prosecutorial Office ordered 7-day detention -including one day incommunicado- for two lawyers.

CHD-PLA condemned the detention warrant against its two members with a written statement. In the statement CHD-PLA said “Only purpose of this detention wave ..  is to annihilate the right to defense.”

The full statement as follows: 

“ÇHD Antalya Branch President Av. Deniz Yıldırım and Av. Ramazan Gökalp was taken into custody by the police in Antalya this morning, under guise of an investigation initiated a year ago. Our branch president Av. Deniz Yıldırım has repeatedly applied to the Prosecutor because of this investigation, to give her statement and defense. Nevertheless, the fact that the detention warrant was issued for them stands as a concrete example of the absence of the rule of law in the country.

Only purpose of this detention wave that follows the patronizing request of Ministry of Justice regarding prohibition of lawyers who attend the political cases is to annihilate the right to defense.

Şube başkanımız ve meslektaşımızın bir an önce Adliyeye getirilmesi ve işlemlerin bizzat savcı tarafından yürütülmesi zorunludur. Avukatlar hakkında soruşturmalar hassasiyet ve özenle yürütülmelidir.

ÇHD Antalya Şube Başkanı Av. Deniz YILDIRIM, aylardır haberdar olduğu ve defalarca savcıya ifade alması konusunda ısrar ettiği bir soruşturma nedeniyle gözaltında. Deniz’in sadece avukatlığı değil, siyasetçi kimliği de saldırı altında. Meslektaşımız yalnız değildir, ÇHD bütün geleneğiyle Deniz’in yanındadır.
