     302 writers, academics, journalists and rights defenders have called on the authorities to ensure justice in criminal enforcement.

     Signing a joint statement entitled “Unity and Solidarity are Exactly for Times Like This”, rights defenders have criticized the draft law on criminal execution, which was presented to the Parliament yesterday.

     Slamming the bill for excluding Anti-Terror Law, based on which politicians, journalists and rights defenders are put on trial and convicted, the signatories have raised concerns over the possible negative consequences of this exclusion. The statement has briefly indicated the following:

     “We are going through very hard times. The world has never found itself in such a difficult situation throughout our life times. Staggering amid disruptive social separations and social-political-economic crises for some time, our country is now hit by this global outbreak.

     Our people are tired and already desperate. If we ignore social emotions and needs, we will inevitably face much more nightmarish times. We have to put an end to these separations and tensions as soon as possible.

     What do we want, then? We want to live in peace and at ease with our people as a whole; in short, we want social normalization.

     It is now high time that we realized ‘Unity and Solidarity’, which was all talk till now. Tomorrow might be too late. We need to take a quick step. From this cloud that is called Coronavirus do we have to derive a silver lining.

     When lives are at stake, there can be no differentiation based on beliefs or ideologies. We need to know that there are numerous arrestees and convicts sleeping on the threshold of Corona catastrophe for lying on the same bed with another person in overcrowded prisons.

     There are criminal offenders and there are also the arrestees and convicts labeled as ‘political prisoners’, some of whom have not yet even deposed to the prosecutor for years.

     A Law on Criminal Enforcement intending to discriminate them has been submitted to the Parliament.

     The state wants to release the ones who commited a ‘crime’ against citizens while keeping the ones who questioned its authoritarianism behind bars.

     In other words, it is about saving the former from the death while leaving the latter to die behind bars.

     In these hard days when people are having a real problem of existence and non-existence, such a law on execution, which will come to mean upgrading and aggravating social separation, is very concerning.

     Social consciousness is now being pushed a little too much. Winning the struggle against coronavirus outbreak and achieving social normalization depend on exerting the will of evacuating prisons as soon as possible.

     It depends on stopping the discrimination of the imprisoned. Otherwise, none of us can look each other in the face, be the dissident or conformable.”
