VIDEO — Turkish family, last victim of Erdoğan’s long arm abroad, stranded at Kiev airport


A Turkish family with children have been detained by Ukranian
security officials at an International Airport in Kiev, the capital city
of Ukraine for three days showing without reason, according to a short
video shared by Turkish national Ali Yıldız on Twitter on Saturday.

Turkish government has been
acting like a real rogue state by unlawfully cancelling passports of
critical citizens, keeping them stranded at airports and fabricating
baseless charges to justify this illegal and illegitimate acts.

Ali Yıldız and his family have been a new victim of the long arm of
the Turkish government under the despotic rule of President Recep Tayyip
Erdoğan abroad. In his short video Ali Yıldız call international
community and human rights bodies to help him and his family to be send
to Turkey forcibly.

Yıldız said in his video that “My name is Ali Yıldız. I have been 3
days in this room. I came from Bangkok to Kiev as a tourist. I am a
Turkish citizen. Ukraine does not require visa from Turkish citizens.
Now, we are at Kiev International Airport.”

Saying that Ukranian security officers put them and locked the door
without any reason, Ali Yıldız continued to say that “Two soldiers
(wait) outside. Yesterday (Friday), I had a flight from Kiev to
Casablanca. They did not allow me to fly. They said ‘we are going to
send you to Bangkok. (However) Today, two officers came and said you
cannot fly again. I asked them ‘Why am I not flying?’ They said ‘Now you
can fly only to Turkey, İstanbul.”

“I don’t want to cancel my flight,” said Ali Yıdız and appeal for
international society and human righst organizatiosn to help them.  Ali
Yıldız stated that “I don’t want them to send me Turkey. I don’t know
what is the reason and what had happened. Please help me!”

This is not the first case of Erdoğan regime’s persecution of the
dissents. Muhammet Furkan Sökmen, a Turkish teacher working for two
schools established by Gülen movement followers in Myanmar, was forcibly
returned to Turkey on Saturday despite his cries for help on social
media. Sökmen was detained at İstanbul Atatürk Airport and was taken to a
police station for interrogation on Saturday.

Sökmen called for “help from the world” in a video recording he
posted on social media minutes before he was handed over to Turkish
authorities at Yangon International Airport by Myanmar police on Friday.

According to another video he earlier posted on social media, Sökmen,
his wife Ayşe and daughter Sibel were detained by local immigration
officials who told the family that Turkish government had invalidated
their passports.According to Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency, Sökmen was first forcibly deported to Bangkok, Thailand on May 24.

“They take me to Bangkok. I am at the airport now. If they send me to
Turkey, I will be prisoned and most probably tortured like many other
tortured under the currency regime. …I am asking for international
protection” Sökmen said in another video.

Despite his calls, he was taken back to İstanbul with Turkish police in company, in a Turkish Airlines flight.An executive at the Horizon International Schools, Sökmen is also a
partner of the Mediterranean International Education Services Co. Ltd,
both based in Myanmar.

The United Nations expressed grave concern on Saturday over the deportation by Myanmar and Thailand of a Turkish national Muhammet Furkan Sökmen over alleged connections to a failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016  in Turkey.

The United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR) said the deportation
of Sökmen, a former employee of an international school in Yangon, to
Turkey was one of an increasing number of cases of Turkish nationals
singled out by Turkish government over alleged links with Gülen
movement.

Meanwhile, NBA star Enes Kanter was denied entry to Romania upon a
request from the Turkish government, according to a tweet posted by the
Turkish basketball player on May 20. An outspoken movement supporter,
Kanter later told media that the Turkish government also had tried to
catch him in Indonesia.http://stockholmcf.org
