CHP’s Yarkadaş stated that baby Miraz’s ordeal doesn’t seem to cease.
CHP Istanbul Deputy Barış Yarkadaş asked “The ones who are persecuting a baby; where have you lost your moral conscience?”
CHP Istanbul Deputy Barış Yarkadaş stated that the baby’s ordeal keeps worsening as his mother is in prison.
Yarkadaş made this statement:
“Eight-month-old baby Miraz’s ordeal doesn’t seem to cease as he is living inside the prison since his mother Gülistan Akbaba is currently detained. After being denied his balloon, toys and a carrying tool called ‘Kangaroo’ last week, Miraz faced other arbitrary interdictions this morning.
Gülistan Akbaba, following the incidents took place this morning, spoke with her lawyers and made them stop the “transfer”. The prison administration, without even waiting on the response for the petition, started the “transfer” process. Mother Gülistan Akbaba objected this, saying “You are exiling me.” The mother said “At least don’t transport my baby in the transfer vehicle which is hot and unventilated.” The prison administration didn’t lean towards this proposal. Although the mother said “Wait for his father so he can come and claim him”, it didn’t affect the outcome. The administration said “We can’t wait on anyone.”
The argument ended with the baby being given to the lawyer. The father Cengiz Akbaba is currently on his way to reclaim his baby. The mother Gülistan Akbaba on the other hand, is being taken to Gebze Prison in a transfer vehicle. The ones who do this to a baby; where have you lost your moral conscience? Violating the fundamental rights of a mother and a baby isn’t enough; you don’t feel comfortable without violating more of their rights every day. The country is being governed by a party which bears the word ‘Justice’ in its’ name, yet we witness persecutions we have never seen in the history of our country. The mothers are being exiled and the babies are being victimized. The ones who came to power with the “We have been victimized” motto, are keeping their government alive by victimizing other people. But let this be known; no oppression lasts forever. The ones who take these decisions, the ones who apply them and the ones who stay silent against them, will be remembered with disgrace.”
