Gaziantep bar association head
Bar association heads who marched to the capital Ankara to protest a judicial decentralization bill spent the night in a deadlock with the police who has the presidents' sit-in surrounded by a barricade. As lawyers outside the park wanted to join the bar association heads, police banned both entries to and exits from the park.
Bar association heads have filed a criminal complaint against Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu and Ankara Governor Vasip Şahin for authorizing the police to halt their Defense March through a violent intervention. The criminal petition said that police officers at the scene of the incident "deprived the bar heads of their liberty” and “imposed torture and ill-treatment on them."
