Struggle of Şenyaşar family continues
Emine Şenyaşar and her son Ferit have been holding a Justice Vigil in front of the Courthouse of Urfa since 9 March 2021, demanding those responsible for the massacre of family members in 2018 to be brought to account.
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.
Emine Şenyaşar and her son Ferit have been holding a Justice Vigil in front of the Courthouse of Urfa since 9 March 2021, demanding those responsible to be brought to account.
Ferit Şenyaşar was elected as a member of parliament for the Green Left Party in Urfa in the parliamentary elections on May 14.
Emine Şenyaşar couldn’t attend the vigil today because of health issues.
In a message on their Twitter account, the family said: “Our struggle for justice continues on its 788th day. It is a human duty to change the government and rulers that have no justice. Let’s not remain silent and be complicit in this persecution.”
