Turkey. March 17, 2020. Sentenced to life imprisonment based on the questionable testimony of a police informer, the political prisoner Mustafa Kocak began a hunger strike on 3 July 2019.
Submitted to Enough 14.
His lawyer, Cakir, stated that Koçak was tortured for 5 days to be forcefully fed, that he was conscious and that serum was attached despite resisting the intervention. Cakir also informed that Koçak’s bruises were caused by the eruption of serums in his arms, and that multiple clamps were attached to Koçak’s head, arms and feet during the intervention.
Çakır said that while all this was happening, the prison prosecutor and the police were in the room. Çakır also shared that Koçak, who said that he was not even allowed to go to the toilet, was harassed with a baton.
A message from Mustafa is “I keep resisting. All this torture is my honor”
