DİYARBAKIR - The police blockade of Piya and Ari production companies, which were raided as part of the operation against journalists in Diyarbakır, has been going on for 27 days.

As part of the operation against Kurdish journalists in Diyarbakır on June 8, police raided JinNews, Pel, Piya and Ari production companies. All digital materials of the agency and production companies were confiscated. Police left both offices after the search at JinNews and Pel Film Production companies was completed.

The police blockade continues at Piya and Ari production companies. The police waiting at the doors of both companies do not allow the employees to enter. On the other hand, the attorneys who applied on the subject were told that "the search continues" and that they would not be allowed to entry or exit of the companies.
