Lawyers apply for a visit to Öcalan

The lawyers of Abdullah Öcalan filed a new application to Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office to be granted a visit to the Imralı island prison.

Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan's lawyers Newroz Uysal, Faik Özgür Erol, Mazlum Dinç and Cengiz Yürekli have applied to Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office to meet with their clients on tomorrow.

After 8 years of total isolation, Öcalan’s lawyers were able to meet with their client on 2 May, 22 May, 12 June, 18 June and 7 August 2019.

The regular requests for visits by the Asrin Legal Office have not been answered by the Public Prosecutor's Office since 7 August 2019.

The tightly guarded prison island of Imrali, where the Kurdish leader has been held since 1999, is completely sealed off from the public.
