BAN on EVRENSEL and BIRGUN newspapers
Yarkadas receiving many posts from state’s prisons stated that “Prisoners can not receive Leftist newspapers like BIRGUN, EVRENSEL and other periodic papers. Arbitrary ban is still on at state prisons,” he added.
Letter Ban is also active
Continuing his words, “Restrictions are not limited with newspapers. 3 books are given to the prisoners in cells. Sending and receiving letters ban is also active. Prisoners are under heavy isolation which means double punishment. Let anyone read & watch whatever they want. These meaningless bans must come to an end”
