Hunger strike in Turkish prison
We are sorry to announce that we lost Ebru Timtik. We are sad, angry, disappointed. We, from all over the world, tried our best, but as a result of injustice, the dysfunctional judicial system of Turkey, we could not get her from their hands. We shall never forget her fight. pic.twitter.com/Dw3ymqRVae— AED (Avocats Européens Démocrates) (@AED_EDL) August 27, 2020
