MUŞ - Police raided the HDP office and houses of co-chairs of the party in Muş province.

Police forces carried out an operation against the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) in Muş province early this morning.
HDP provincial branch co-chairs Ferhat Çakı and Muhlise Karagüzel, and Kudbettin Çelik were taken into custody during house raids. Following a detailed search in the houses targeted in the operation, police also raided the HDP office in the city center.
Condemning the raids, HDP Muş MP Mensur Işık said the following; “These operations aim to intimidate our party which has sought to do democratic politics for years. While the fascist AKP-MHP bloc is weakening every day, our people are increasingly claiming their party. For this reason, the fascist regime tries to intimidate us. A number of party members have been arrested recently. Still, they should not forget that we will never give up nor take a step back at any cost. We will always fight to build democratic politics and peace.”
