Deportation center in Izmir: Refugees are crying for help – What’s happening!?

Via Gazete Karinca (Link in Turkish) – The Turkish NGO, Halkların Köprüsü Derneği (HKD), held a press statement on May 6, 2017 in order to draw attention to the outrageous conditions that the refugees detained in Harmandalı Deportation Center in İzmir were exposed. After the news footage of the refugees in the Center crying for help reflected in the press, a number of NGOs, including HKD moved to inspect the Center and yet, were refused to a permission of entry. The lawyers’ entry to inspect the conditions of refugees was also prevented by the Governorship of İzmir.
