Nihat Konak has been arrested in 1998 for the reason of membership of illegal communist party, TKP/ML TİKKO . After 15 years in 2013, he has ended his „charge“ on 26th of November and would be released. But the prison administration made up an excuse and has lengthened his staying in prison for 3 years more.
The excuse is that Nihat Konak began hunger strike in order to support kurdish prisoners who stay in Iran in 2008. And administration gave a diciplinary penalty. And then Konak objected that, but his objection letter has been lost therefore the penalty was getting to be valid.The one who has to find the letter is not our side, prison administration has to do that! Nihat Konak is not the responsible of lost letter and it is completely a responsibility of prison.His objection right has been breaved. Konak can not be stayed in prison unfairly.
Freedom and Justice for Nihat Konak.
We want fair trial!
