Journalist Esra Solin Dal still in isolation in Bakırköy Women's Closed Prison

Journalist Esra Solin Dal has been kept in an isolation cell since 26 April.

Mezopotamya Agency (MA) journalist Esra Solin Dal was remanded in custody on 26 April accused of "being a member of a terrorist organization". She had been detained in house raids on 23 April within the context of the Istanbul-based police political operation. The journalist continues to be held in a single cell in Bakırköy Women's Closed Prison.

Her lawyers said that Esra Solin Dal's request to move to the ward with other prisoners was rejected by the prison administration for "security reasons".
