Although we got permission from the prosecutor’s office, they didn’t let us to meet him saying ‘his health condition is not appropriate’ so we were sent back. We went to the prosecutor's office again after being told that we would meet on the second day, and the prosecutor's office made a call to Ankara Numune Education and Research Hospital where my husband was treated and we returned with the answer that his health was not suitable for the interview. However, we were disappointed when we went to the Ankara Numune Training and Research Hospital that my husband was discharged the day before and was sent to the prison. We do not understand that if my husband cannot stay on his feet or sit and that’s what their excuse then how is such a sick patient being sent back to prison? If his condition was good enough to be sent to prison, why did they hid from us for 3 days and didn’t let us to see him?”
Alpsoy, who called the authorities to investigate the victimization they had experienced, said: “This bureaucratic injustice and persecution are the three or four officers who see themselves as ‘more royal than the king’. it is unacceptable that the right and the law could not be as children's play. We have no political man who will search for our righteousness, we only have our Lord.”
