Activists pledge solidarity with prominent human rights defender
15/02/2021, 15:58

Responding to the conviction and sentencing of veteran human rights lawyer, Eren Keskin to six years in jail on absurd grounds of ‘membership of an armed terrorist organization’, Amnesty International’s Turkey Campaigner, Milena Buyum, said:

“Today a human rights lawyer who has spoken out against injustice for more than three decades, has become the victim of injustice herself.

“Eren Keskin has dedicated her life to defending the rights of women, prisoners and fought for justice for the families of the disappeared. This verdict is yet another shocking example of anti-terrorism laws being used to criminalize legitimate, peaceful activities.

“’I have been prosecuted many times and jailed for my thoughts. I’m still here. I’m not going anywhere,’ Eren Keskin tweeted after she was sentenced.

“We are not going anywhere either.”
