Civilians killed during curfews under investigation for ‘organisational ties’

While the killers of 24 civilians in Nisêbîn in 2015 remain unknown, a Mesopotamia News Agency report has revealed that for the last five years the prosecutor has been investigating the supposed “ties” of the victims with the “organisation” based on their historical social media posts.

During the curfews that started in the Nusaybin (Nisêbîn) district of Turkey’s south-eastern province of Mardin (Mêrdîn) on 1 October 2015, 24 civilians, including sick and disabled residents, lost their lives. After eight curfews declared during the year 2015 in Nisêbîn, there has been no progress in the investigation into the killings.

The reports of human rights organisations reveal that the civilians in question died as a result of gunfire from Turkish law enforcement officers.

15 year old labelled a member of an organisation

Despite numerous calls from human rights organisations for an “effective investigation” into the killing of the 24 residents in Nisêbîn, no police officer has been questioned in the five years since the event.

A report sent to the Mardin Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office based on the data collected by the Nisêbîn District Police Department revealed that the investigation conducted by the prosecutor’s office aimed at discovering possible “organisational ties”, rather than attempting to bring perpetrators to justice.

While the social media accounts were investigated by the prosecutor’s office, 15-year-old Hakan Doğan was deemed to be a “member of the organisation” in the investigation file.
