Kept in Tekirdağ No. 1 Type T Prison, Süleyman Gökten has told his lawyers that he and the inmates staying in the same cell were battered by guards last morning (February 26).
Speaking to bianet, lawyer Tamer Doğan and Ezgi Çakır conveyed that six of those battered in the cell were kept in room of sponge with their hands and feet handcuffed for six hours. Doğan and Çakır said that they will file a criminal complaint against the prison administration and guards.
According to Gökten’s lawyers Çakır and Doğan, as many as 50 guards entering the cells for morning roll call assaulted and battered them.
Lawyer Doğan added that those who were battered weren’t taken to infirmary on the pretext that there was no doctor in the prison.
