Summary of proceedings against Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) deputy and Democratic Regions Party (DBP) co-chair Saliha Aydeniz.
The Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office has prepared a summary of proceedings against Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) deputy and Democratic Regions Party (DBP) co-chair Saliha Aydeniz on charges of "resisting the police", "insulting and injuring a public official", "meetings and demonstration marches without permission".
The summary of proceedings was sent to the Ministry of Justice.
After the Ministry's examination, the proceedings will be sent to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and then to the Grand National Assembly with a request to "lift her parliamentary immunity".
50 activists were detained during the Gemlik March in İstanbul on 12 June to protest the isolation of Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan.
HDP deputies protested the police blockade and discussed with the police.
Saliha Aydeniz was accused of "pushing" a police officer.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said about Aydeniz: "She will pay the price of this action in front of the law. We will quickly remove her immunity and show that people like her can't live under this roof."
