The letter sent by Haşim Gezer is as follows: “I am Haşim Gezer, I am being held in Elazığ No 2 High Security Closed Prison. I am the older brother of Garibe Gezer, who died in Kandıra Prison. Garibe and I talked on the phone once or twice a month. On 14/12/2021, the Kandıra Prison administration wanted to talk to me via SEGBİS (Auido and Video Conference System) about our phone conversations. I didn't want to talk without Garibe's lawyers, because Garibe told on the phone that she was held in solitary confinement, that she was frequently dragged to a padded cell half naked and that she was harassed and raped by the guards. The prison administartion has these phone records in their system.
LET THE LAWYERS CONTACT ME
As far as I know, Garibe has three lawyers. One is Jiyan, one is Eren Keskin, I don't know who the third lawyer is. If I knew their address, I would have written to them. If you reach Garibe's lawyers, tell them about this phone issue. It would be nice if they could reach me, or make the prosecutor take my statement as well. In order for the process to run smoothly, Garibe's lawyers should contact me somehow."
APPLICATION FROM GERGERLIOĞLU
HDP's Gergerlioğlu applied to the Parliamentary Human Rights Investigation Committee, requesting the Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gül to respond to his elder brother Gezer's statements.
