Bianet website today reported on the story of Gurbet Çakar, editorial manager of the Kurdish-Turkish women magazine Rengê Hevîya Jinê. The woman, writes Bianet, has been in detention for three months and a Diyarbak?r court decided to extend her detention for at least 20 days. She had previously been sentenced to more than three years in jail. In the hearing on 10 June, the Diyarbak?r 5th High Criminal Court dismissed the request for the release of Gurbet Çakar, editorial manager of the Rengê Hevîya Jinê women magazine.
Çakar was detained three months ago under charges of “making propaganda for the PKK via the media”. The PKK is the militant Kurdistan Workers’ Party. Rengê Hevîya Jinê is the only women magazine in Turkey publishing in Kurdish and Turkish. Executive Çakar was detained in the middle of March by the Diyarbak?r Public Prosecutor, where she had gone in order to give a statement. She is currently imprisoned in the Diyarbak?r E Type Prison.
