course Sevil is not alone in her case, far from it, hundreds of
people, journalists, academicians, students and intellectuals are
imprisoned in Turkey due to the exception laws that are supposed to
fight against terrorism. The problem is that these laws became an
instrument to gag any kind of contestation in the country. Sevil is a
symbol because in her situation the injustice is obvious and there
are hefty fines out of all proportion to the alleged offenses: she is
accused to “belong to a terrorist group”. Turkey is a candidate
country to the European Union and considers itself as an example for
the Middle East countries. What kind of example? Making pressure
above the authorities for Sevil shows them that they cannot disregard
and violate human rights without provoking reactions in the rest of
the world. İf Sevil is a terrorist, we are all terrorists!
