Leyla Güven released from custody

While DTK co-chair Leyla Güven was released from custody, Peace Mother Fatma Turan was referred to court.

Earlier today, Democratic Society Congress (DTK) co-chair Leyla Güven was taken into custody in Hakkari province, southeast of Turkey.

Güven, who was then taken to the anti-terror branch of the police department, was released from custody after giving a statement at the prosecutor’s office.

On the other hand, Fatma Turan, a member of the Peace Mothers Council in Hakkari, was also detained in Hakkari today for “insulting the president” after she called for peace in Hakkari province on Wednesday. She called on all women to unite for peace, stressing that the Kurdish people will not be destroyed by war and peace is urgently needed.

Turan has been referred to court after giving her statement at the prosecutor’s office.
