HDP members detained in Hewlêr released

The detained members of the HDP representative office in Hewlêr have been released.

The members of the local HDP representation arrested in Hewlêr (Erbil) have been released. Nahide Ermiş, Hikmet Hatip and Ruken Mercan were visiting Gülcan Alp and were apparently denounced by an unknown person. HDP representative Nahide Ermiş told RojNews that security forces entered the apartment to make the arrests. They were only told that a complaint had been filed, she said. Who the complainant was said to have been was kept secret.

The HDP politician pointed out that her party's representation in Hewlêr has official status and all members are known to the authorities. A complaint about the arbitrary arrests was therefore filed with the Asayîş.
