The former assistants of Turkish Medical Association (TTB) Chair Raşit Tükel, who has been detained as part of the investigation launched against the TTB Central Council members, have made a statement of support.

Serving as academic at Department of Psychiatry in İstanbul Medical Faculty of İstanbul University, Tükel has been working since 1991. The statement penned by the doctors who served as assistant of Tükel within these years is as follows:

“We’ve written many things, we’ve wanted to share and say a lot of things, we stopped. At the end of the day, no matter how much we write, speak of our grief, it wouldn’t suffice to explain or convey our anger, reaction and longing.

“We were once the assistants of Prof. Raşit. When we heard about Prof. Raşit today, we’ve all remembered and felt how much we’ve learned about humanism and medical science; sensitivity and care; respect for human and labor; science and justice; grace and kindness; responsibility, sedulity, principality and devotion; sharing, friendship and loyalty.

“We all hurt so bad in our hearts as witnessing these incidents during this whole process.

 “These days will pass truth will remain, and Prof. Raşit will always remain as a human being as he has always been. He will stay with us, he will be with us. The professor will continue to teach, share and act in solidarity.

“We are grateful”.

Signatories:

Dr. Amber Özhan, Dr. Atike Çıta, Dr. Aysu Tihan, Dr. Banu Aslantaş Ertekin, Dr. Batuhan Ayık, Dr. Berna Özata Yıldızhan, Dr. Cavid Guliyev, Dr. Cem Taylan Erden, Dr. Ceylan Ergül, Dr. Çağrı Yüksel, Dr. Deniz Karayün, Dr. Didem Aksüt Dönmez, Dr. Dilek Güntepe, Dr. Evrim Göde, Dr. Gasım Gasımzade, Dr. Hasan Efe, Dr. İlker Özyıldırım, Dr. İlker Taşdemir, Dr. Meliha Öztürk, Dr. Mine Öztürk, Dr. Muhammed Mehtar, Dr. Nalan Öztürk, Dr. Neşe Direk Tecirli, Dr. Özay Özdemir, Dr. Seda Şahin Özyıldırım, Dr. Sercan Karabulut, Dr. Sevda Bıkmaz, Dr. Zerrin Oğlağu, Dr. Zeynep Tatar.

What happened?

On July 5, 10 rights advocates from various rights organizations were taken into custody during a training workshop with the topic “Protection and digital security of human rights advocates” in Büyükada, one of the Prince Islands in İstanbul. Nothing was heard from detained rights defenders for 30 hours.

On July 18, Idil Eser (Amnesty International Turkey Director), Özlem Dalkıran (Citizens’ Assembly / formerly called Helsinki Citizens Association), Günal Kurşun (Human Rights Agenda Association), Veli Acu (Human Rights Agenda Association),  Ali Garawi (citizen of Sweden / human rights trainer), and Peter Steudtner (citizen of Germany / human rights trainer) were arrested on charges of “committing crimes on behalf of the terrorist organization without being a member” (Article 220/6 of Turkish Penal Code/TCK ) and “being a member of an armed terrorist organization” (Articles 314/2 and 314/3 of TCK).

On July 23, İlknur Üstün (Women’s Coalition) and Nalan Erkem (Citizens’ Assembly / formerly called Helsinki Citizens Association), who were released on probation earlier with an international travel ban, were arrested later upon the prosecutor’s objection to their release.

Amnesty International Turkey Executive Board Chair Taner Kılıç who had been in pre-trial detention since June 2017 in another case, was included to the indictment of Büyükada lawsuit later as a suspect.

According to the bill of indictment prepared by Public Prosecutor Can Tuncay, the rights defenders are claimed to be members of the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization/Parallel State Organization (FETÖ/PDY), Kurdistan Workers’ Party/Kurdistan Communities Union (PKK/KCK) and The Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP/C).

On October 25, the court ruled that Günal Kurşun, İlknur Üstün, İdil Eser, Nalan Erkem, Peter Steudtner, Özlem Dalkıran, Ali Garawi and Veli Acu be released. In addition, an international travel ban was imposed on Özlem Dalkıran and Veli Acu, and the probation order for Şeyhmus Özbekli and Nejat Taştan that was issued on July 25, was revoked.

The file of Taner Kılıç, who was standing trial in a separate case held before İzmir 16 Assize Court on charge of “financing terrorism and spying” and was later included in the indictment of Büyükada lawsuit as a suspect, was combined with the main Büyükada Case.
