Family of Gülistan Doku starts sit-in Dersim

The family of Gülistan Doku, who has not been heard from for 870 days, started a sit-in in Seyit Rıza Square in Dersim.

The family of Munzur University student Gülistan Doku, who disappeared in Dersim on 5 January 2022, came to the city to demand justice and the truth for their daughter and started a sit-in in front of Seyit Rıza Square.

Doku's father Halit, mother Bedriye and older sister Aygül Doku, Turkish Workers Party (TIP) deputy Sera Kadıgil, HDP deputy Dilşat Canbaz, representatives of civil and political parties in the city and Munzur University students came together on Art Street and marched to Seyit Rıza Square. During the march, slogans such as "Where is Gulistan Doku?", "Governor, find Gulistan" were chanted and a banner saying "No Gulistan, No Peace" was unfurled.

Reminding that Doku had been missing in Dersim for 870 days, HDP's Dilşat Canbaz said: "Where is Gülistan Doku?" and appealed to the authorities to establish a commission in the parliament as soon as possible.

Addressing Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu, TIP member Sera Kadıgil said: "You talked to this family and promised to find their daughter. Where is Gulistan Doku? Where are you? Why don't you keep your word, Süleyman Soylu? Where is the Minister of Justice of this country?”

After the press release, the Doku family started a sit-in in Seyit Rıza Square.
