Emine Şenyaşar's Justice Vigil continues

Members of the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects and the Chamber of Electrical Engineers visited Emine Şenyaşar on 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 in Ankara continues.

Members of the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects (TMMOB) Van, Amed, Mardin, Urfa and Batman Provincial Coordination Committees paid a support visit to Emine Şenyaşar and Peoples' Equality and Democracy Party (DEM Party) Urfa MP Ferit Şenyaşar on the 119th day of the vigil.

Chamber of Electrical Engineers (EMO) Diyarbakır Branch Co-Chair Ufuk Bulut said, ‘6 years are almost over. His son's trial is still going on, but there is no result yet. There must be a result that will fulfil justice. This cannot be compensated in mother Şenyaşar’s heart, but it should be compensated in our conscience.”

Mahsun Çiya Korkmaz, secretary of TMMOB Diyarbakır Provincial Coordination Board, said: “There have been unsolved murders in Kurdistan for 100 years. We say in their person; let these unsolved murders be revealed. Their struggle is our struggle.”

Şerefhan Aydın, former executive of TMMOB Chamber of Architects in Diyarbakır, stated the following: “Mother Emine has a unique case, attitude and struggle. She has become a hope for all our people. We bow to her behaviour with respect. We hope that mother Emine's demands will be fulfilled soon.”

After the protest, Emine Şenyaşar and her son Ferit Şenyaşar went to the Parliament.
