The Police Chief who Attacked Representative During Arrest was Exposed by the Same Representative as a Torturer

The Kurdish representative Gergerlioğlu had brought the issue of police torture to the floor of the Assembly many times and had asked for an investigation against a certain police chief who took particular pleasure in torturing the suspects in custody. The representative detailed the torture this police chief inflicted on the suspects, including sexual torture and the threat of raping with a bottle. The Turkish state, in a vendetta, sent the very torturing police chief to arrest the National Assembly representative who demanded an investigation against him.

The Police Chief who Attacked Representative During Arrest was Exposed by the Same Representative as a Torturer

Turkish police raided the house of the elected National Assembly opposition HDP representative Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu.

In a survival move to eliminate all opposition before the elections, the Turkish government’s ruling coalition parties have increased their attacks on the progressive, pro-Kurdish HDP party.

The latest attack came after the government-appointed prosecutor created a crime out of thin air to accuse an HDP representative of retweeting a news item from a public news site. When the bogus charge and process were challenged, the head of the National Assembly called the court, saying the Assembly was not going to wait for the results to arrest Gergerlioğlu, the HDP representative. And with the government coalition party votes, Gergerlioğlu was stripped of his Assembly immunity.

Gergerlioğlu went home to await the police to arrest him after being attacked by the government representatives and forcefully removed from the Assembly building.

Yesterday the police arrived at his home to arrest the representative whose immunity was lifted by the coalition party votes in the Assembly. The coalition parties that voted to strip Gergerlioğlu’s immunity belong to the Islamic right-wing AKP and the racist, nationalist, Nazi, MHP party. Both parties have long, deep, and open relationships with the Mafia, organized crime, and illegal drug dealing and smuggling.

Gergerlioğlu was ready with his suit packed to go to prison as many of his representatives had done before. When the police came knocking at his door, he invited them in and was getting his suitcase and putting on his shoes when an older plain-cloth officer started slapping and attacking him. Shocking videos show the older officer not allowing the National Assembly Kurdish representative to put on his shoes. Then, the cop started pushing and shoving and pulling Gergerlioğlu.

While many people interpreted this unnecessary violence on the traditional racist attacks the Kurds have endured from Turks in nationalist Turkey, the news sources soon revealed another story behind the event.

The Kurdish representative Gergerlioğlu had brought the issue of police torture to the floor of the Assembly many times and had asked for an investigation against a certain police chief who took particular pleasure in torturing the suspects in custody. The representative detailed the torture this police chief inflicted on the suspects, including sexual torture and the threat of raping with a bottle.

The Turkish state, in a vendetta, sent the very torturing police chief to arrest the National Assembly representative who demanded an investigation against him.

After arrested, beaten, and dragged off to the police vehicle, Gergerlioğlu started having heart palpitations under arrest and was taken to the hospital. There, he was put under critical care. However, the police started pressuring the hospital to release him immediately so he could be taken back to the station to be left under the custody of the torturing police chief.

As of this writing, the police forced Gergerlioğlu out of the hospital by tricking the staff and wheeling him off in a hospital bed. Although his family, relatives, and party members are trying to find where the police took him, the authorities refuse to give information on where he was taken.
