Turkish police fined one citizen and gave another a write-up for bringing along a baby stroller and a child to the market on May 5, during the national lockdown.
One woman in Edirne was almost fined for going to the store on a bike driven by a child, who brought the woman to the market because she had trouble walking.
"My grandson brought me here because I can't walk. I beg you, don't fine us," the woman told police officers, who gave her a write-up instead of a fine.
Meanwhile, in downtown Edirne, a woman with a stroller was approached by police and averted a fine when she told them that the child wasn't hers and that she was just watching the kid while their mother shopped.
Police waited with the baby until their parent returned, and told her it was forbidden to go outside with children.
"I don't have anyone to leave [the baby] with, their father is working, so I had to bring them along," the mother told police, but was still fined.
Turkey entered a full lockdown on April 29, although the restriction was widely criticized for having ample exemptions to the curfew rule, which led to traffic congestion on the first day of the regulation.
