MARDEF: Elif Kisa should be released immediately!
MARDEF called for participation and support to achieve the liberation of the two executives.
The Federation of Democratic Associations of Maras (MARDEF) demanded the immediate release of HDP Elbistan executive, Elif Kisa, who has been under arrest since 3 December 2019.
In a written statement, MARDEF said: "Elbistan HDP executives Elif Kisa and Bekir Kara have been in detention for forty days. The arrest is unjust and unlawful."
MARDEF underlined that Elif Kisa has children with disabilities. Her son Ahmet Kisa, despite being speech-impaired, is carrying out a "determined resistance" against his mother's arrest.
The statement added: "MARDEF has tried to add its voice to the voice of our dear painter Ahmet Kisa against the unjust arrest of Elif Kisa and Bekir Kara since the first day. We reiterate our support for his struggle."
Stating that Ahmet Kisa's demand is its own demand, MARDEF called for participation and support to achieve the liberation of the two executives.
