MOSCOW (Sputnik) — HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtas and deputy Abdullah Zeydan accused the warden of practices that were "outside the boundaries of law" and of "inhumane treatment of other inmates," the Hurriyet daily quoted Demirtas as saying.
The PKK is designated as a terrorist group in Turkey and the United States. Tensions between Ankara and the Kurds escalated in July 2015 when a ceasefire between Ankara and the PKK collapsed because of a series of terror attacks allegedly committed by PKK members.
The Kurds are living in parts of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. In Turkey, Kurds represent the largest ethnic minority, and are striving to create their own independent state.
