Lawyers denied access to Imralı since August apply for a visit

Abdullah Öcalan's lawyers have applied to the Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office to meet with their client.

Lawyers of Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan; Raziye Turgut, Rezan Sarıca, Serbay Köklü and İbrahim Bilmez have applied to Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office to meet with their client on Wednesday.

The appeals of the lawyers for a meeting with Öcalan have gone unanswered since August 7.

Öcalan's lawyers Rezan Sarıca and Nevroz Uysal met with their client on 2 May, 22 May, 12 June, 18 June and 7 August after 8 years.

During the meeting with his lawyers on 7 August, Öcalan said the following; "I am trying to open a space for the Kurds. Let's solve the Kurdish question. I can eliminate the matter and possibility of conflict within a week. I am ready for a solution, I trust myself. But the state as well as the mind behind it must do the necessary, too.”

On the other hand, families of Abdullah Öcalan and other prisoners in Imralı Island Prison; Hamili Yıldırım, Ömer Hayri Konar and Veysi Aktaş, were allowed access to the island prison on 12 August on occasion of Eid al-Adha.
