Ahmet's lawyers managed to meet with him in Duhok public order. Ahmet also had a 2-minute phone call with his family in Northern and Eastern Syria.
Beşdar Hasan, one of Süleyman Ahmet's lawyers, made a statement to Rojnews about the meeting. Hasan stated that today they had a meeting with the Duhok Investigation Court and the Duhok Public Security Directorate, with an appointment made by the President of the Human Rights Institution, Muna Yaqub, and the General Director of Human Relations of the Human Rights Institution, Süleyman Muhsin.
Hasan, together with Rêvîng Yasin, Cameraman Sarmemî and Rêbaz Wisû, lawyers of Süleyman Ahmet Defense Group, said the following about the meeting they held with the relevant institutions: “Following these developments, we had a meeting with Süleyman Ahmet in a room. During the meeting, Süleyman Ahmet conveyed his special greetings to everyone who made an effort for him, especially Rojnews journalists. Süleyman Ahmet also expressed his gratitude to all organizations, journalists, unions and patriots who participated in the freedom campaign carried out for him. We were very happy to see that he is healthy. He stated that his only demand is to continue public pressure until he released.” 
Hasan stated that Ahmet was accused of "endangering national security", which is Article 1 of Law No. 21 enacted by the Kurdistan Region Parliament in 2003, and that the prosecutor continued to hold him in prison for this reason. Hasan said: “However, not a single piece of evidence has been produced regarding this alleged crime for 7 months. We received the necessary power of attorney to become his attorney. Thereupon, we met with the Duhok Public Order Review Court. They stated that their doors are open to us."
Finally, Hasan said: “We will continue our work to present the Süleyman Ahmet file to the court in a very short time. To put it plainly, the day Süleyman Ahmet will be brought to court will be the day he will be released. We want to give the good news that Süleyman Ahmet has been released as soon as possible.

It has also been officially documented that he has a residence permit in the Kurdistan Region."
