Father Er stated that he went to Hewler on February 8 and that he met with his son in Hewlêr Prison on February 13. Father narrated the speech of his son during their prison visit as follows: "We had a second hearing on February 10. They are sending me and Mazlum Dağ to death. I have nothing to do with the incident. I don't even seem to be armed in the images. I am given a death penalty for no guilt. I was subjected to all kinds of torture in custody for 4 months. Those were the police of Hewlêr, who tortured me. I was asked to take the blame in torture. I did not accept. I did not accept in court as well."
Having said that his son has been in Iraq for 15 years and a citizen there, Father Er expressed that his son was not guilty. Father Er made the following statements: "My son has repeatedly told me that he is innocent and is currently being subjected to unjust execution. His file is currently in the Iraqi Court of Appeal. When the decision is approved, my son will be unfairly executed. We want this decision to be cancelled."
