They mentioned something like ‘Search request decision’. They have come after a denouncement about preparation of petrol bombs at our home. They tried to get us on the ground, we resisted, meanwhile, they battered us. They rummaged everywhere before they leave. They had no order for detention. They made criminal record-check. They wanted us to sign search record but we denied. »
Sezin Uçar from Law Office of Oppressed, who visited the home after the raid, stated « They have tried to organize a conspiracy. They claim, a repairman who came to fix gas-fired boiler had sent a denouncement via email writing ‘Petrol bombs are produced at home’. Our clients are the ones who were wounded in Suruc massacre. They have stayed at home only last two days, since their arrival from Suruc. They haven’t been home for a long time. Moreover, there haven’t been such a visit from a repairman. They have no court decision. According to Homeland Security Package, they come with a ‘search request’. This is a totally fictional and extrajudicial execution.
