On the Detention of Our Vice Co-Chair Mr Alp Altınörs

fb_img_1473424900291Our vice Co-Chair Mr Alp Altınörs’ home was raided by police forces around 02:00 AM tonight and he was taken into police custody. We protest and condemn this clear act of aggression as a further instance of the campaign of repression on HDP and forces of democratic opposition. 

 Our Vice Co-Chair Mr. Altınörs is being accused of participating in the funeral of HDP Tokat executive Mr. Zakir Karabulut who was one of the 102 citizens killed in the IS suicide bomb attack against a peace rally in Ankara on October 10, 2015. During the house-raid, the police have confiscated the reports published by HDP on the destruction in Sur and Cizre as evidence.

 HDP considers the unlawful police raid on Mr. Altınörs’ home and the confiscation of HDP’s official reports as alleged “evidence” as state terror and we strongly condemn these acts and mentality.
The form of this raid and the detention of our party executive on an absurd and unlawful pretext is the most explicit manifestation of the “civilian” coup that is currently underway.
We invite the national and international public to respond urgently to this act of belligerence and express their reaction.
