Turkish police beat Ahmet Koca for speaking Kurdish

4y ago


Istanbul: Ahmet Koca was walking home with his family when police stopped him. When the officers heard Koca speaking on the phone in Kurdish, they called him a terrorist and began severely beating him. Koca was knocked to the ground and stamped on repeatedly by about 5 officers. He was then handcuffed and put into a police vehicle. Rather than taking him to the police station, the officers took him to an unknown location which Koca described as a "dark, empty room". He was continually beaten by the officers for about 2 hours before he was thrown out of the car in front of Haseki hospital in Istanbul.
