Teacher Ayşe Çelik had been sentenced to 1 year and three months of imprisonment due to ‘illegal organization propaganda’ by saying, “Do not let children die,” referring to the curfews in Kurdish provinces on a TV show she participated to via phone call. Çelik was jailed on April 29 together with her six-month-old baby Deran, then sent her baby back to her family on April 27 due to the conditions in prison. Baby Deran can only see her mother once a day for 30-45 minutes with Prosecutor permission.
On the other hand, the application of measure made for Çelik at the Constitutional Court was denied. Çelik’s lawyer Mahsuni Karaman announced the news on Twitter: “The Constitutional Court has denied out claim for measure on the stay of execution of teacher Ayşe within her individual application, due to lack of conditions for measure.” The petition campaign started for teacher Ayşe continues.
