Ley­la Güven, Co-Pres­i­dent of the DTK and HDP deputy for Hakkari, who is on her 79th day of an unlim­it­ed hunger strike as protest against the carcer­al iso­la­tion imposed on the leader of the Kur­dish peo­ple, Abdul­lah Öcalan, has been freed from jail.

The fifth ses­sion of the case against Güven, accused of “found­ing and com­mand­ing an armed orga­ni­za­tion”, of “pro­pa­gan­da for an ille­gal orga­ni­za­tion” and of “oppo­si­tion to Law 2911”, was held at the 9th court of Diyarbakir’s Penal Courthouse.

Nei­ther Güven nor her lawyers nor the pub­lic could attend the hearing.

While the pros­e­cu­tor pro­posed the pro­lon­ga­tion of Güven’s deten­tion, the board ordered her lib­er­a­tion with a ban on for­eign travel.

Fol­low­ing the announce­ment of this deci­sion, Turk­ish police forces stormed the type E prison in Diyarbakir where Güven is incarcerated.

They are stop­ping the pub­lic from assem­bling in front of the jail in order to greet Güven when she is released and no one is autho­rized to approach the zone except for Güven’s daugh­ter, Sabi­ha Temizkan.

Tem­izkan has sent the fol­low­ing mes­sage on twit­ter: “I am wait­ing in front of the jail. The prison is under blo­cus and the only peo­ple allowed to enter are the mem­bers of my fam­i­ly and those of fam­i­lies vis­it­ing pris­on­ers today. HDP deputies are not autho­rized to greet my moth­er. I will greet her alone!”

Per­vin Bul­dan, HDP Co-Pres­i­dent, Berdan Öztürk, DTK Co-Pres­i­dent  and oth­er HDP deputies have arrived at the jail, but they are not autho­rized entrance.

Jour­nal­ists are also being kept from cov­er­ing the event.
