URFA - Receiving the last news from Abdullah Öcalan two years ago, his brother Mehmet Öcalan stated that the opening of the Imralı gates was due to great social pressure and said: "We should not expect anything from anyone. We should trust our own freedom, ensure our unity, overcome the isolation."
PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan has been held in Imrali Type F High Security Prison since February 15, 1999 under severe isolation conditions. For two years, there has been no news from Öcalan and Hamili Yıldırım, Ömer Hayri Konar and Veysi Aktaş. While all applications of lawyers are left unanswered, actions and activities to end the isolation continue.
The last meeting with Öcalan was on the phone of his brother Mehmet Öcalan on March 25, 2021, but this meeting lasted only 3-4 minutes.
Speaking to the Mesopotamia Agency (MA) on the 2nd anniversary of the last meeting with Öcalan, Mehmet Öcalan called on the public to end the isolation practices.
'THE STATE TRAMPLES ITS OWN LAWS'
Noting that Abdullah Öcalan reacted to the isolation practices in his last phone call, Mehmet Öcalan said: " Then the president said that he has legal rights, he has to talk to his lawyers, the state was doing it wrong and we shouldn't have accepted it by thinking about it. Then the phone was turned off. According to the laws Turkey has set, every family has the right to meet with their prisoners. These isolation practices cannot be defined by law, democracy or humanity. Regarding the 4 political prisoners held in Imrali for 2 years. We can't get any news. The state is also trampling its own laws."
'WE SHOULD TRUST OUR SELF-STRENGTH'
Criticizing the silences of the opposition parties in the face of isolation practices, Mehmet Öcalan said: "The opposition should talk about the isolation applied in İmralı prison. The Kurdish Question releated to the isolation of Öcalan. More than 50 thousand people lost their lives. Millions of people had to migrate from the lands they live in. The opposition should say; If they are in power, they will solve the Kurdish Question in a democratic way. But we want them to say them. I don't have much faith in what they can say. They haven't said anything so far, nor have they done something. Our request is that the opposition does not do as the power does. No problem is solved without solving the Kurdish Question in the Middle East. We should wait for anything. We should trust our own specificity, we should ensure our unity. If the Kurdish Question is solved, all the questions in the Middle East will be solved."
