Ali Poyraz, the father of Grup Yorum’s member Dilan: “Blood is coming out of the mouth and the nose of my daughter.”
The mother of Dilan, the Grup Yorum’s member whose nose and mouth bleed, suffered pancreas and lung cancer. Dilan is experiencing the same symptoms as her mother did.
“The other day I went to the open visit. Six days ago they discharged my daughter from the hospital. The blood is coming out of her nose and mouth.
During the open visit, I took my daughter’s hand, I put my hands on her cheeks and she was burning like fire. In the hospital they did only a superficial examination”, said Dilan’s father when he went to the prison visit two days ago. We spoke with Ali Poyraz (48), the father of the arrested Grup Yorum member Dilan Poyraz (22) about the circumstances of his daughter’s health. He said that he is worried for the health of his daughter and that she was not being taken to the hospital with excuses such as: “The vehicle didn’t come” or “Currently there are no soldiers”. Poyraz mentioned he was able to see his daughter only for 15 minutes when he went to the visit, and added: “My daughter took the side of the people that suffer injustice. The system sees her as a terorist. Yesterday she stood by the journalists, today she stands by the miners. My daughter came back and stood by the turban wearing people who suffered injustice. I am proud of my daughter.”
“Diagnostics and treatment is not possible under this conditions”In the letter from Silivri Prison Dilan Poyraz stated that the bleeding from her mouth and nose from her started and requested immediate transfer to the hospital and blood analysis. The results have still not arrived. “I experience difficulty breathing. My sleep cycle has been impaired. Under this conditions correct diagnostics and treatment are not possible. For example, if that day the soldier does not come, you cannot go to the medical examination or if the soldier does not step out of the room, you cannot get examined”, she said.
