At yesterday’s sit-down staged by the Saturday Mothers, who congregate every week in Galatasaray Square to inquire after the fate of their arrested relatives, brother of Hasan Ocak, who was killed while in custody 22 years ago, Maside Ocak, was arrested.

Two police officers who approached him while he was reading the press announcement interrupted and told Ocak, ‘You cannot accuse the state.’ Ocak, who was arrested following the announcement, was released after his statement had been taken. The CHP’s Sezgin Tanrıkulu, who participated at the rally and accompanied Ocak to the police station, said, ‘This conduct amounts to severe harassment of a peaceful action that has been continuing for 615 weeks.’
