İSTANBUL - The lawyers of PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan applied to Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office and İmralı Prison Directorate to urgently meet with their client.
 
Lawyers of PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan, who is held under severe isolation conditions in İmralı Type F High Security Closed Prison, applied to the Bursa Chief Public Prosecutor's Office and the Directorate of İmralı Penitentiary Institution to meet with their client. The application was made by  Raziye Öztürk, Faik Özgür Erol, Rezan Sarıc and Emran Emekçi.
 
The lawyers applied for an "urgent meeting" with the Bursa Penal Execution Judge on November 22, as no positive or negative response was given to their applications to meet with their client Öcalan. Rejecting the application, the judge told that there were two new disciplinary punishment on Öcalan and a visitation ban. Öcalan's attorneys recently learned that Öcalan was banned from lawyer meetings for 6 months and family visits for 3 months.
 
NO NEWS FROM ÖCALAN FOR 8 MONTHS
 
Rezan Sarıca and Nevroz Uysal, two of Öcalan's lawyers, were able to meet with their clients after 8 years on May 2-22, June 12-18 and August 7, 2019. Öcalan, who has been held under severe isolation conditions in İmralı High Security F-Type Closed Prison for 22 years, made a phone call yesterday with his brother Mehmet Öcalan after the last phone call on April 27, 2020. However, Mehmet Öcalan had announced that the phonecall was interrupted.
 
BANS BROUGHT BEFORE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT
 
The lawyers brought the ban on family visits to the Constitutional Court (AYM) with "unlawful" disciplinary penalties on May 12, following the refusal of the judge. In their application to the Constitutional Court, the lawyers drew attention to "incommunicado" situation, which is the absolute state of lack of communication, and demanded that not being informed is torture to the family, that it violates right to respect for family and private life, the right to defense and fair trial, and the right to an effective remedy.
 
LAST FAMILY VISIT WAS IN 2019
 
Öcalan's lawyers Rezan Sarıca and Newroz Uysal last met with their clients on May 2, May 22, June 12, June 18 and August 7, 2019 after 8 years. Öcalan was allowed to a phone call for the first time in 23 years on April 27, 2020.
