Main opposition CHP’s bill for sick prisoners rejected by ruling AKP votes
ANKARAA bill proposal by the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) that foresees easing the release of sick prisoners has been rejected by votes from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).
The condition of sick prisoners has been raised various times by both the CHP and the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP).
Speaking at Parliament’s General Assembly before voting on the proposal, CHP Deputy Chair Sezgin Tanrıkulu said the attitude of the AKP reflected its insincerity over the ongoing peace process.
The proposal was rejected through the votes of the AKP after the debate.
