The family attacked by police told the moments of violence


TEKİRDAĞ - Gültaş family, who were exposed to the police vioelence in the garden of their house on the first day of the Eid told the moments of police attack.

Gültaş family lives in Silahtarağa Neighborhood of Çorlu, Tekirdağ. As the family were sitting on the garden of their apartment building due to the curfew during the Eid, they had a discussion with the police, who warned them sternly and then attacked by the police. Those moments were recorded by the mobiles of the neighbors and shared in the social media. As the reactions emerge, Tekirdağ Governshop announced that the police officers were discharged from the duty and an investigation is opened.

The family members we have reached, the mother Sare Gültaş (60) and her son Ahmet Gültaş, told those moment of violence.

Ahmet Gültaş said that as they were sitting in their garden they heard the police chasing the kids playing on streets calling them "Bastards" and when his brother was looking from the gate of their garden the police also sweared his brother as well. When his brother reacted to the police, asking them "How do you find the right to swear at me?", the police begins to swear even in a more violent tone.  Ahmet Gültaş told what happened afterwards as follows: "So I took my brother inside for the incident not the go further and we closed the the garden gate. Later on 4-5 police vehicles arrived and they threw pepper gas to our garden. Then they raided the garden with batons in their hands. As we were already affected by the gas, we were not able to do anything and they started beating up us all with batons, including my mother and father. They were also threating us saying things like "I am going to kill you, qnd "You will never be able to live in Çorlu from now on" as well as many insults and verbal abuse. Even thought my mother and father are quite elderly, they did not care about this and they attacked them hitting their heads and knees with batons."

"An ambulance came to take my mother to the hospital. however, when the ambulance arrived the police told the healthcare workers not to take my mother to the ambulance and the ambulance left without taking my mother in", said Ahmet Gültaş reminding that his mother fainted due to the police attack.

Ahmet Gültaş also noted that his brothers Mehmet and Osman Gültaş were taken into custody together with their uncle Kazım Gültaş and the police keep beating them up in the moments of custody.

One of the striking news Ahmet Gültaş shares is that police also broke the doors and windows of their neighbor, who recorded the incidents to the video by his mobile.

Mother Gültaş reacted to the police attack as she said, "Such a police can not represent the power of the state. So many incidents like this have been happening lately. Does the state give such an authority to the police? If so, the state should disempower the police. I am 60 years old, how do they beat me? My grandchildren's pscyhology is all ruined, because they can not understand how their grandmother, grandfather, mother and father were all beaten up. They don't do anything to those gansters, rapists and the ones who steal, but they beat us. I press charges against all of them".
