Duvar EnglishProsecutor slammed for preventing Demirtaş's release visits Erdoğan in presidential palace
Former co-chair of pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Selahattin Demirtaş warned former prosecutor Yüksel Kocaman that his close relationship with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan didn't mean he wouldn't be facing prosecution in the future.
Kocaman, the prosecutor in Demirtaş' case that ensured his detention despite sanctions from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), was in the news for a visit he paid President Erdoğan immediately after his wedding, and received presents from the head of state.
Demirtaş’ lawyer Cahit Kırkazak said that he met with the former co-chair in Edirne Prison where Demirtaş is being held despite a lack of an indictment.
"He reminded certain prosecutors of this: There were prosecutors who got gifted armored vehicles, and they still couldn't escape judgement. Gifts you receive will not save you from prosecution," Kırkazak said of the former co-chair's comments.
