Lawyers who met with Öcalan on May 22, said that a statement on the meeting would be made following a meeting with the hunger strike activists.

Lawyers from the Asrın Law Office were granted a visit to Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan in Imralı Island Prison on May 22. This was the second visit of Öcalan’s lawyer to their client, the first one having taken place on May 2, that has been allowed since July 2011, after which a total isolation regime started to be executed against the Kurdish leader.

In a statement about the most recent visit, the lawyers said the following;

“In the framework of our meeting held with Mr. Öcalan on May 22, we have been conveying our client’s opinions to the hunger strike activists in the first place and discussing the matter with them upon his request. Once the discussion is concluded, we will share a satisfactory statement with the public, which we know has been awaited by the public opinion impatiently.”
