Three people jailed in Amed

The Turkish regime’s political genocide against the Kurdish people continues unabated.

As part of an investigation conducted by Diyarbakır Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office, Turkish police forces carried out house raids and detained eight people on October 20.

During the raid on the house of one of the detainees, Faris Türk, in the central Kayapınar district, police forces attacked members of the family with dogs.

According to reports, the detainees are accused of “being members of an illegal organisation” on the grounds that their names were mentioned on a document seized from a person.

Two of those detained were remanded in custody while the others were released on condition of judicial control.
