URGENT: musician (Grup Yorum) and political prisoner in #Turkey in life danger

Turkey. The Grup Yorum Solidarity Committee are asking for urgent solidarity for Grup Yorum and Mustafa Koçak.

Submitted to Enough 14.

We are asking for urgent solidarity for Grup Yorum and Mustafa Koçak:

DEMAND JUSTICE FOR MUSTAFA KOCAK!

Mustafa Kocak was a young man (28) full of life.

An unjust verdict by a Turkish court changed his life and brought him on the brink of death. Even under torture, he didn’t accept to be an accomplice to the political crimes and games of the anti-terror police, who wanted him to give names and to testify against dissidents of the AKP. This is how he became the scapegoat for an action he didn’t commit. Another person within opposition was forced to sign a police protocol against Mustafa Kocak. The result is a severe life sentence (+42 years), which really means a whole life in prison.
The prosecution had nothing to present against him except of this police protocol. And the person who signed it might be the most unlucky man now, regretting what he did and pulling back his statement.. But the justice in Turkey obviously don’t want to get the law in force, since it just confirmed a decision of police and prosecution without asking for proofs and now rejecting proofs on favor of defense.His family and lawyers aren’t even allowed to see him im prison due to a Covid-19 visit ban.
The only way to get justice for Mustafa and many other people who live this injustice, is to raise your voice and send messages to the Justice Ministry in Turkey.

FREE THE SONGS OF GRUP YORUM – END REPRESSION AGAINST POPULAR ARTS AND ARTISTS!


This is before the bans of Grup Yorum concerts by the government in Turkey. Hundred thousands of people sang their songs together at Bakirköy square in Istanbul.
Ibrahim Gökcek is only asking for the abolition of concert bans and end of arbitrary imprisonment of the group members.
Singer of Grup Yorum, Helin Bölek lost her life on the 288th day of her death fast to defend her music.
Ibrahim Gökcek is as well on the brink of death with 303 days hunger protest.
His life can be saved with a political decision, which is also the only reason for this dramatical situation.
