URFA - Members of DBP, HDP, TJA and the 78's Initiative visited the Şenyaşar family who continues the Justice Watch in front of the Urfa Courthouse.
The Justice Watch carried out by the Şenyaşar family has reached day 436. The sit-in was launched on March 9, 2021 by Emine Şenyaşar, who lost her husband and two sons as a result of the attack carried out by AKP MP İbrahim Halil Yıldız's bodyguards and relatives in the Suruç province of Urfa, on June 14, 2018.The family, who came to the Urfa Courthouse from their house in Suruç district in the early hours of the morning, started the sit-in in the area called "Şenyaşar family justice corner". Şenyaşar family was visited by 78's Initiative, Democratic Regions Party (DBP), People's Democratic Party (HDP) members and Tevgerên Jinên Azad (TJA) activists.
VISIT FOR SOLIDARITY
Celalettin Can, Spokesperson of the 78's Initiative and HDP Central Executive Board (MYK) member, said that they visited the Şenyaşar family in solidarity. Expressing that the massacre inflicted deep wounds on many people, Can said, “This murder was committed directly in front of the eyes of the state and security forces. Even though the murderers are known, the government, the judiciary and state institutions did not pursue them. The reason for this was that the killers were from the ruling party."
Stating that they will pursue the case until justice is provided, Can said: "Şenyaşar family will get justice. We are not pessimistic in that respect. We have lost 5 thousand people in the 70's. They were not forgotten. Those who are involved in those deaths will be held to account eventually. Şenyaşar family will not be forgotten either. The killers will definately be held to account."
OUR STRUGGLE WILL CONTINUE'
Ferit Şenyaşar said: "If Turkey is a state of law, we want it to fulfill its responsibilities as a state of law. We have been subjected to a massacre as a family in Suruç State Hospital. It has been four years. Would the same thing happen if this happened in the west? This clearly is the law of the superior. Our sit-in will continue until the law of superiors is applied."
