At this moment in Turkey thousands of Kurdish people –amongst them a lot of politicians, human rights activists and journalists -are imprisoned due to the political crackdown and the ongoing conflict in the Turkish Kurdish region. As a result of the so called KCK (Union of the Kurdish Communities) campaign, executed by the Turkish government, thousands of Kurdish human rights activists, politicians, journalists, mayors and lawyers are arrested and detained.
Due to the misuse of anti-terrorism laws Turkish authorities are able to criminalize citizens who engage in legitimate organizations and activities and keep them in custody for an unfixed period of time. See for more information:
On 27 November 2011 Abdulcabbar İğdi is arrested and since then kept in custody in several Turkish prisons. Abdulcabbar İğdi is a local human rights activist and politician from the city called Cizre, which is situated in the Southeastern part of Turkey. Before his imprisonment İğdi fulfilled several social and political positions and because of his (official) activities he became a target for the Turkish authorities.
