Emine Şenyaşar: I want the people of Van to join me

On 14 June 2018, the bodyguards and relatives of AKP Urfa MP Ibrahim Halil Yıldız attacked the Şenyaşar family's shop in Suruç during the election campaign.


In the attack, brothers Celal, Adil, Mehmet, Fadıl and Ferit Şenyaşar were severely injured and hospitalized. Relatives and supporters of AKP MP Yıldız killed Celal and Adil Şenyaşar in hospital, and their father Hacı Esvet Şenyaşar, when he went to the hospital to see his sons. He was brutally murdered, being lynched in front of his wife, Emine Şenyaşar.

The Justice Vigil that Emine Şenyaşar and her son Ferit (Urfa DEM Party MP) started in front of the Turkish Ministry of Justice continues on its 68th day.

Speaking at the vigil, Ferit Şenyaşar said that they would continue their justice vigil during the Ramadan and added: "The justice this mother seeks is for everyone, and one day, those who committed this injustice will also be brought to justice. Just as the people of Van fought united against the injustice, we call all our people to join us in front of the Ministry of Justice. The Ministry, which has locked all its doors due to this mother's struggle, will be forced to open them again He will either provide justice or resign."

Emine Şenyaşar said that she will continue her search for justice and added: “I want the crowd in Van to be here too. Because if they don’t leave us alone, we will get justice. I will stay here until my son is released. I want the mothers of Van to join me."
