Emphasizing that the frequency of such incidents has increased, the association has announced that they will continue their struggle for the legal remedies within legal boundaries:

“The fact that rights violations resulting in injuries and deaths caused by armored vehicles gradually increasing has been worrying us as rights defenders as well as the public. We call the authorities to duty for an effective investigation and announce that we will make every endeavour within legal boundaries so that the trial processes will not end in impunity in such incidents caused by the State of Emergency practices prevailing in our country and the resulting extreme security policies.”
