Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan was given a new “disciplinary penalty”.
An application was made to the Bursa Execution Judge on 10 July with a request to allow a family visit for Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan and other prisoners in Imralı, Hamili Yıldırım, Veysi Aktaş and Ömer Hayri Konar. All are kept in absolute isolation in Imralı Prison.
The judge, who rejected the application on 18 July, stated that there was a new “disciplinary sanction” imposed on Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan and the other prisoners who had not been allowed to meet with his lawyers and families for over two years.
Notifying the lawyers of the decision on 19 July, the judge did not provide information on the date and reason of the “disciplinary penalty”.
There has been no news from Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan since 25 March 2021.
