HDP Muş co-chairs jailed

HDP Muş co-chairs Ferhat Çakı and Muhlise Karagüzel have been remanded in custody.

As part of the ongoing political genocide operations against the Kurdish people, police forces carried out an operation against the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) in Muş province two days ago.

HDP provincial branch co-chairs Ferhat Çakı and Muhlise Karagüzel, and Kudbettin Çelik were taken into custody during house raids. Following a detailed search in the houses targeted in the operation, police also raided the HDP office where the search lasted 8 hours.

While Kudbettin Çelik was released after giving a statement to the prosecutor, HDP co-chairs Çakı and Karagüzel were remanded in custody for alleged “membership to a terrorist organization”.

The co-chairs were sent to Muş Prison.
