This custody is followed by the fear and witch-hunt politics that ran through April 16 referendum. AKP tried to prevent “no” result with questionable votes and party militias with guns but their plays are foozled. Our friend Hakan Gülseven is taken into custody because he shouted the truth that No won. We stand with our friend and we will continue to shout No’s victory. “
