Nine imprisoned students from Boğaziçi University have penned a letter.
Mentioning the prison conditions in the letter, the students have said that the support put behind by their friends has liberated them.
On March 19 a group of students opened a stand giving out Turkish delight in North Campus following 46 soldiers losing their lives in Afrin. A group of antiwar students protested them by opening a banner reading “Invasion, massacre cannot be marked with Turkish delight”. A quarrel sparked between the two groups and the stand was reportedly attacked.
On March 24, Saturday, Erdoğan said, “Those communist, traitor terrorist youngsters scattered the desk. We will not grant those youngsters right to education at university.”
Following his statements the police raided the dormitories and houses of the students. After the raids, in total sixteen Boğaziçi University students were taken into custody.
