Emine Şenyaşar and Ferit Şenyaşar have held a sit-in protest in front of the Urfa Courthouse to demand justice for their killed relatives.

Riha - The sit-in protest held in front of the Urfa Courthouse by Emine Şenyaşar, whose husband and two sons were murdered in the attack carried out by the relatives and bodyguards of AKP Urfa MP İbrahim Halil Yıldız in the Suruç district of Urfa province on June 14, 2018, and her son Ferit Şenyaşar continues on its 477th day.

“A mother has been sitting in front of the courthouse to demand justice for 477 days. 16 investigations have been launched against her.
