Lawyers visited Leyla Güven to convey Öcalan’s message to the hunger strikers

Öcalan’s lawyers have visited DTK Co-chair and HDP MP Leyla Güven who has been on an indefinite hunger strike for 198 days demanding the end of the isolation regime executed against Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan.

The visit had a special meaning as the lawyers conveyed the message Öcalan asked them to share with the hunger strikers to Leyla Güven.

In a short statement, Güven said; “The lawyers have visited me and conveyed Mr. Öcalan’s message. Now they are engaged in intense efforts to convey the message to the other hunger strike activists. We will share our opinion with the public opinion very soon.”

Lawyers from the Asrın Law Office were granted a visit to their client Abdullah Öcalan in Imralı Island Prison on May 22. This was the second visit of Öcalan’s lawyer to their client. The first had taken place on May 2, and it was the first visit granted since July 2011, after which a total isolation regime started to be executed against the Kurdish leader.

In a statement about the second visit, the lawyers said the following;

“In the framework of our meeting held with Mr. Öcalan on May 22, we have been conveying our client’s opinions to the hunger strike activists in the first place and discussing the matter with them upon his request. Once the discussion is concluded, we will share a satisfactory statement with the public, which we know has been awaited by the public opinion impatiently.”
