Called out for his 2 sick siblings: You can not carry through this


MARDİN - Mehmet Emin Gezer who lost his brother in an pro- ISIS attack and who got paralyzed from below the waist,  pointed out that his two brothers, who have been in prison for years, are at risk of epidemic, and warned that the government can not carry through the law proposal on execution.

Negotiations on the "Law on the Execution of Criminal and Security Measures and the Proposal for Amendments to Some Laws", which has passed by the Justice Commission, continue in the Parliament. With the regulation expected to be discussed during this week, it is aimed to exclude political prisoners, while the reactions of the families continue.
One of the families reacting to the new law proposal is Gezer Family from Mardin's Dargeçit district. Bilal Gezer lost his life during the October 6-8, Kobané protests as a result of the fire opened by pro- ISIS militants. Mehmet Emin Gezer, from the same family was seriously injured as a result of the attack he suffered and was paralyzed from the waist down. While the investigations on both incidents have not been proceeding, the house of the family was raided by the police multiple times. 9 members of the family is being investigated. Two members of the family, Garibe and Haşim was arrested 3 years ago.
27 year old Garibe Gezer was arrested on March 3, 2016 while visiting her brother. Garibe was sentenced to life and 21 years' imprisonment, which was aggravated by allegations such as "breaking the unity and integrity of the state" and "being a member of the organization", citing some events during the curfew period in Dargeçit in 2015. Garibe who is being held in solitary confinement, suffers from asthma and migrane
40 year old Haşim Gezer is imprisoned since March 14, 2017. He is sentenced to 22 years in prison and also held in solitary confinement. Haşim's ribs were broken as a result of the attack of the guards during the hunger strikes initiated to demand the termination of the continued isolation on PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan. Haşim, who suffers from asthma as a result of his broken ribs, recently had a surgery.   
Haşim who spoke to his family on the phone, stating that they can not access hygiene materials, said: "My hygiene materials like wet towels and paper tissues were confiscated during the search conducted this week. They are not giving us any hygiene materials despite the outbreak and they enter our wards with no masks and no gloves."
Mehmet Emin Gezer making a call for his siblings in prison, said his mother and father are also sick. Brother Gezer, who stated that they demand all prisoners benefit from the law proposal on execution equally, said: "The regulation is violating the principle of equality. Everyone should be equal before the law. If this law passes as it is now, thousands of prisoners like my siblings will be left to die. I am calling on to the Ministry of Justice, the government, you will not be able to carry through this if you don't change the law on execution."
