Emine Şenyaşar: Where should I go for justice?

Emine Şenyaşar and her son Ferit (Urfa DEM Party MP) continued their Justice Vigil in Ankara.


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 57th day.

Addressing the Minister of Justice in front of the Ministry, Şenyaşar said: "Why is he hiding? Is justice hidden? Where are my children? Can people be killed in a hospital?" 

Şenyaşar then said that her children were killed and added that she had been waiting for justice for 6 years. She said that those who killed her children are free while her son is still in prison and added: "As if my pain was not enough, they put my son in prison too. Where should I go for justice?"
