Police prevent people from attending funeral of Ali Boçnak

The police prevented people to attend the funeral of ill prisoner Ali Boçnak.

The remains of Boçnak, who were kept for hours in the hospital morgue, were eventually delivered to the family in the evening.

Boçnak was then taken to Kars and buried in Yenimahalle Asri Cemetery this morning.

The Turkish police prevented people who wanted to attend the funeral and only allowed close relatives to join the ceremony.
