Al-Asr Law Office lawyers : Ibrahim Bilmez, Suzanne Akiba, Imran Amekci, and Cengiz Yurkli submitted a new request to the Bursa Prosecutor’s Office and the Imrali Prison Directorate to meet with their clients, leader  Abdullah Ocalan, and the other Imrali detainees, Omer Khayri Kunar, Hamili Yildirim, and Veysi Aktaş.

Since 2021, the Turkish authorities have imposed strict isolation on Leader Abdullah Ocalan.

No information has been received in any form about Leader Abdullah Ocalan for more than 3 years.

Leader Ocalan was arrested 23 years ago in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, following an international conspiracy that targeted him on February 15, 1999. He was handed over to the Turkish authorities, that imposed strict isolation on him, preventing his lawyers and family from meeting with him.
