On. Aug. 17, police raided the homes of Aslı Erdoğan, a novelist of international renown and a board member at Özgür Gündem and Ragıp Zarakolu, a columnist of the newspaper.

Aslı Erdoğan was detained during the police raid on her home and taken to the detention center of the Istanbul Police Department’s Counterterrorism Branch. Reports said Erdoğan, a prominent writer whose works have been translated into many languages and who was chosen by the French literary journal Lire amongst the “50 Writers of Future,” will not be allowed to see her lawyer in the first five days of her detention as per a decision of the Istanbul Prosecutor’s Office. However, a tweet later suggested that the prosecutor currently assigned to Erdoğan’s case denied that the writer had been banned from seeing her lawyer. Under Turkey’s State of Emergency rules, the detention period can last up to 30 days and prosecutors have the authority to bar suspects from seeing their lawyers in the first five days of their detention.

Police also raided a house that belongs to the son of Ragıp Zarakolu, a prominent writer, publisher, journalist and human rights-activist, on the grounds that his son’s home is the writer’s formal residence. Zarakolu, who posted a statement on Facebook stated that his son wasn’t home when the police broke in, adding that books found at the residence had been confiscated.

On Aug. 16, Özgür Gündem was shuttered and 23 journalists, including those with Özgür Gündem, Dicle News Agency and İMC, were taken into custody.
