Professor Fincancı sends message from prison

TTB Central Council chair, Şebnem Korur Fincancı, sent a message from prison.

Şebnem Korur Fincancı, President of the Central Council of the Turkish Medical Association (TTB), who was arrested on 27 October for saying that Turkey's chemical weapons attacks should be investigated, sent a message from Sincan Women's Closed Prison.

Fincancı wrote: “Dear colleagues, dear fellow travellers, time was not enough when I was preparing a scientific explanation with your references, but I owe it to you. I know that you will continue to struggle to make our working conditions and environments worthy of us again. Although it makes me sad not to be with you physically, I am with you with my heart.

I needed some rest, suppose I went on vacation. As soon as I rest, I will join you to continue the fight with you. The differences that are thought to be insurmountable are our wealth. The solidarity you showed when we were arrested was a mirror of this. Let's continue without stepping back. With friendship and solidarity.”
