Prisoner Geçgel says he has received threats

Halil Geçgel, a prisoner in Bolu F-Type Prison, denounced being threatened.

Halil Geçgel, who was arrested and charged with membership of an illegal organization in 2007, is serving a 44-year prison sentence. When he talked to his daughter, on Wednesday, Geçgel told her he had been threatened. 

"If anything happens to me, the state is responsible," he told his daughter.

Since the Geçgel family is living in Antep they are not able to visit Halil frequently. His daughter asked that his father be referred to Antep Prison, but was instead offered to be informers to work for the state.
