These are lived today, after the killing of the prosecutor the two days ago, entrance and exit of the lawyers at the courthouse, was applied high precaution suspected of terrorism to the all lawyers. Lawyers opposed to body search and X-Ray.
English translation of the speech of Istanbul Bar Association Chairman Umit Kocasakal, you’ll hear from the video from 2 minutes on, as follows:
“In a place where I was… also over me… that intervention was made me too. Hereafter, we will speak the other things and we will tell… So far our approach was extremely sensitive, unfortunately this has been evaluated differently. If the police can do that to a Bar Association Chairman today… You see what they do to the lawyers already. But this is not going to end like this, you’ll see.”
Words are ended in here,
Laws are ended anymore.
And you beautiful Anatolia, cry!
Cry, until your tears will end…
