Pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) MP Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu has slammed authorities for failing to provide a funeral car for a 20-year-old Kurdish inmate who died “suspiciously” in prison.
“Turkey has experienced another shame! A funeral car wasn’t given to Şervan Can Güder, a 20-year-old Kurdish political prisoner who died suspiciously and which was called a ‘heart attack’ in [eastern province of] Van’s F [type prison], although he died in a state prison,” he said in a tweet on March 23.
Türkiye bir utancı daha yaşadı!— Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu (@gergerliogluof) March 23, 2022
Van F'de şüpheli bir şekilde ölen "kalp krizi"denen 20 yaşındaki Kürt siyasi mahpus Şervan Can Güder'e cenaze aracı verilmedi. Oysa o devletin cezaevinde ölmüştü!
" Size yok" dendi!
Bu insanlık dışı işlere niye imza atıyorsunuz?@bybekirbozdag pic.twitter.com/oz3zmvO6Gk
In the same tweet Gergerlioğlu asked Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ about the incident that happened under his watch.
Gergerlioğlu said Güder’s coffin was carried on the back of a truck.
