On 13 November 2017, human rights defender and lawyer Selçuk Kozağaçlı was falsely charged with membership of an armed terrorist organisation, namely the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party (DHKP-C), which is recognized as a terrorist organisation in Turkey, and sent to Metris Prison.

On the evening of 8 November 2017, Selçuk Kozağaçlı was taken into custody by a group of police officers as he made his way to a meeting with a number of Bar Association presidents and was brought to İstanbul Security Directorate’s Anti-Terror Branch.

On 13 November 2017, four days after his arrest, Selçuk Kozağaçlı was ordered to remain in pre-trial detention by an Istanbul judge as a result of the charges he faced. A trial date has yet to be set.

On 15 November 2017, the People’s Law Office reported that Selçuk Kozağaçlı was transferred from Metris Prison to the 9th Block of Istanbul Silivri Prison, a special unit dedicated to “terrorists”.
